What are earls and dukes?
Earls and dukes are titles of the aristocracy in Europe. Although the hierarchy varies between countries, the order of precedence in the UK is: Duke Marquis Earl Viscount Baron Baronet Knight In other words, A Duke outranks an Earl. Several members of the British royal family carry the title of Duke (as well as Earl), which is the highest honour that the ruling monarch can bestow. There are several families in the U.K. honoured with the title of Duke outside of the royal family where notable dukes are The Duke of Edinburgh, the Duke of York, and the Duke of Cambridge.
