Admiral of the Fleet Louis Francis Albert Victor Nicholas Mountbatten, 1st Earl Mountbatten of Burma

The title Earl Mountbatten of Burma was created in the Peerage of the United Kingdommarker in 1947 for Louis Mountbatten, 1st Viscount Mountbatten of Burma, the last Viceroy of India.

The letters patent creating the title are rare in that they specified a remainder allowing the title to descend failing heirs male, "to every...daughter lawfully begotten... successively in order of seniority of age and priority of birth and to the heirs male of their bodies lawfully begotten". As a result Lord Mountbatten of Burmamarker's eldest daughter Patricia succeeded as The Countess Mountbatten of Burma upon the former's death.

The subsidiary titles of the Earldom are: Viscount Mountbatten of Burma, of Romsey in the County of Southampton (created 1946), and Baron Romsey, of Romsey in the County of Southampton (1947). Both of these titles, in the Peerage of the United Kingdom, have the same special remainder as the Earldom.

Lord Romsey was the courtesy title by which Lady Mountbatten of Burma's eldest son and heir was known until he succeeded his father as Lord Brabourne.

The family seat is Newhouse, near Ashford, Kentmarker.
