Refine search

Duke of Rothesay was a title of the heir apparent to the throne of the Kingdom of Scotland before 1707, of the Kingdom of Great Britain from 1707 to 1801, and now of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. HRH Prince Charles, is the current Duke of Rothesay. It is the title mandated for use by the heir apparent when in Scotland, in preference to the English titles Duke of Cornwall (which also belongs to the eldest living son of the Monarch, when and only when he is also heir apparent, by right) and Prince of Wales (traditionally granted to the heir apparent).

 

The Duke of Rothesay also holds other Scottish titles, including those of Earl of Carrick, Baron of Renfrew, Lord of the Isles and Prince and Great Steward of Scotland. The title is named after Rothesay on the Isle of Bute, Argyll and Bute, but is not associated with any legal entity or landed property, unlike the Duchy of Cornwall.   This tartan was published in W & AK Johnston Limited "The Tartans of the Clans & Septs of Scotland 1906" although it is thought to be older. The normal Rothesay tartan was in the Sobieski brothers' Vestiarium Scoticum 1842.
