The Titles Deprivation Act 1917 authorised enemies of the United Kingdom during the First World War to be deprived of their British peerages and royal titles.
Peers deprived of their titles:
-HRH Charles Edward, Duke of Albany, Earl of Clarence and Baron Arklow
-HRH Ernest Augustus, Duke of Cumberland and Teviotdale, Earl of Armagh
-HRH Ernest Augustus (Duke of Brunswick), Prince of Great Britain and Ireland (son and heir of the Duke of Cumberland)
-Henry, Viscount Taaffe of Corren and Baron of Ballymote
No descendant of the four former ‘peers’ has ever petitioned the Crown for the revival of their titles.
