List of viscounts in the peerages of Britain and Ireland


List of viscounts in the peerages of Britain and Ireland




This is a list of the 111 present and extant Viscounts in the Peerages of England, Scotland, Great Britain, Ireland, and the United Kingdom. Note that it does not include extant viscountcies which have become merged (either through marriage or elevation) with higher peerages and are today in use only as subsidiary titles. For a more complete list, which adds these "hidden" viscounties as well as extinct, dormant, abeyant, and forfeit ones, see List of Viscountcies.

Order of precedence

The general order of precedence among Viscounts is:

  1. Viscounts of England
  2. Viscounts of Scotland
  3. Viscounts of Great Britain
  4. Viscounts of Ireland
  5. Viscounts of the United Kingdom

However, the viscountcies of Ireland which were created after the Acts of Union 1800 yield precedence to older United Kingdom viscountcies; one of these post-Union Irish viscountcies is older than any viscountcy of the United Kingdom, one other remains as a viscountcy, two are extinct, and one is now a subordinate title.
