Category:Earls of Arundel
English: The title Earl of Arundel is the oldest extant earldom and perhaps the oldest extant title in the Peerage of England. It was created in 1138 for the Norman baron Sir William d'Aubigny. Until the mid-13th century, the Earls were also frequently known as Earl of Sussex, until this title fell into disuse. At about the same time, the Earldom fell to the originally Breton FitzAlan family, a younger branch of which went on to become the Stuart family which later ruled Scotland.
