The Duke of Sussex was a title in the UK Peerage.  It was conferred on 27 November 1801 upon The Prince Augustus Frederick, the sixth son of George III. He was made Baron Arklow and Earl of Inverness, at the same time.   Since he had no legitimate issue, the titles became extinct on his death in 1843.
