The hereditary Spanish title Duke of Gandíamarker was created in 1483 by Ferdinand II of Aragon from the original Italian title "Duke of Candia" or "Duca di Candia" belonging to the Italian "Stato di Mare" or Italian Kingdoms of the Mediterranea Sea. This was the second creation (Ferdinand himself was the last of the dukes of the first creation). According to the Catholic Encyclopedia this was a purchase of a title by Pope Alexander VI for his son Pier Luigi (Pedro Luis).

The dukedom went to Pier Luigi's brother (or half-brother, mothers unknown) Giovanni. He was assassinated, and his young son became Duke. The fourth Duke was the religious figure Francesco Borgia. He became a Jesuit, but after the death of his wife with whom he had a large family; the eldest son Carlos, later viceroy of Portugal, became the fifth Duke. The sixth duke's younger son Gaspar Cardinal de Borja y Velasco became a bishop and diplomat.
