The title of Duke of Gramont (duc de Gramont) was a prominent dukedom and peerage in the French nobility. It was created in 1643 and abolished in 1790 (and again in 1848) but retains its title by decree of 1852 administered by the Minister of Justice.

The dukedom was in the Peerage of France, and the Gramont family also held the additional titles of Prince de Bidache, Sovereign of Bidache, Count of Guiche and Louvigny, Viscount of Aster, Baron d'Andouins and of Hagetmau.[1]
