ⓘ List of French marquisates

The following page contains an incomplete list of marquisates that exist or formerly existed in France or within its conquered provinces. They were created by the kings of France and Spain, the dukes of Savoy and Lorraine, the popes in Comtat Venaissin, and other sovereign lords in the present-day Republic of France.

From the Late middle Ages to the French revolution, marquisates were mainly raised by letters patent. In some cases, other official acts, such as Royal diplomas, were used for the creation of marquisates. These marquisates were given to members of princely houses, nobles, officials, military, and landowners as a reward.

At present there is no complete list of marquisates or other Marquis titles not included in this list, particularly because their creations were numerous especially during the reign of Louis XIV and XV.

This list also contains "marquisates of use", which can only be titles of courtesy used by the descendants of those who appropriated some titles, or may be legally created, but have not been documented marquisates. Due to the loss of records in fires, wars and intentional destruction during the French revolution, it was not established that these seigneuries were ever up in the evening marquisates. Recent findings archive has shown that some names which were previously considered, in fact only titles of courtesy, raised marquisates.
