Courtesy title

A courtesy title is a title that does not have legal significance but rather is used through custom or courtesy in the context of nobility, the titles used by children of members of the nobility. In some contexts, courtesy title is used to mean the more general concept of a title or honorific such as Mr. Mrs. Ms. Dr. Miss and Madam. In France, for example, many titles are not substantive titles but titres de courtoisie, adopted unilaterally; when done by a genuine member of the noblesse d'épée the custom was tolerated in French society. A common practice is title declension, when cadet males of noble families landed aristocracy, may assume a lower courtesy title than that borne by the head of their family though lacking a titled seigneury themselves. For example, the eldest son of the Duke of Paris may be called Marquis de Paris and younger sons Count N. of Paris, where N. stands for the first name. In the hereditary Napoleonic and Restoration peerage, declension was a legal right of younger sons, the derivative title being heritable by male primogeniture.

During the ancien régime the only substantive titles were feudal, land-based and required a royal grant or royal recognition. In order to use the title of count, one had to own a seigneurie elevated to county and to comply with the remainder of the grant; these legal prescriptions, came to be enforced only with respect to the title of duke. Most titles were self-assumed courtesy titles those used at the royal court and in legal documents; the clergymen before the episcopal ordination used the title of abbé, followed by the name of the principal title of their father. Members of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta used the title chevalier in the same fashion; the heir apparent of a titled nobleman used one of the lesser titles of his father as a courtesy title. In the 17th century, the heirs of the most powerful dukes were sometimes allowed to assume the title of prince. In the 18th, a trend was for the heir to use the title of duke, it was achieved in one of three ways: The head of family may have two dukedoms and his heir could use the junior one.

The younger sons of a noble titleholder used one of the family's lesser titles, but one of duke or prince. In untitled families of the nobility, every son used a different territorial designation, the so-called nom de terre; the daughters used the title of mademoiselle, followed by the name of a manor owned by their father. For example, Anne Marie Louise d'Orléans, Duchess of Montpensier known as La Grande Mademoiselle, was the eldest daughter of Gaston d'Orléans and his first wife Marie de Bourbon, Duchess of Montpensier. Anne Marie Louise was known as Mademoiselle from the time of her birth; the United Kingdom has a detailed system of courtesy titles and styles by which the eldest son, male-line grandson or great-grandson and heir of a peer may use a subsidiary title of his ancestor though it is the ancestor who holds the title substantively. By extension, the children not only of all peers but of those who bear derivative courtesy titles as male-line descendants of a substantive peer bear specific titles or styles by courtesy.

Under United Kingdom law, users of courtesy titles of nobility have nonetheless been held to be commoners, eligible for election to the House of Commons rather than the House of Lords. English honorifics Royal and noble title styles
