WORLD'S SECOND DUKE AND
DUCHESS OF YORK

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What were the second Duke and Duchess of York?

The title ‘Duke of York’ is a title that distinguishes British royalty and is given to the second son of the British monarch. The wife of the Duke of York is known as the Duchess of York.

Probably the most famous Duchess of York is Fergie, who is actually Sarah Ferguson. She was married to Prince Andrew, Duke of York, for ten years and although they were well-known far outside the palace gates, they definitely were not the second Duke and Duchess of York.

That title belongs to Edward of Norwich and he held the title of Duke in the House of York from 1402 – 1415. His wife, Phillipa de Mohun, was the second Duchess of York and they had no children.

The Duke Edward of Norwich, although not the only, was one of the few Dukes in history to carry only this title throughout his life. Most of the other Dukes have either held another title, such as King of England. He also stands as one of the few Dukes that never had a male heir to pass on the crown to.
