    The Isle of Man extends that title to the monarch.   Frankly, who cares?

    Titles were granted in the male gender and remain that way to this day.   Does it matter - we know HM is female!!

    Because the titles associated with the Isle of Man and the Duchies of Lancaster and Normandy have always been rendered in the masculine format when held by the monarch of England (and since 1707, Great Britain).

    It's just the title that the Queen is known by in The Isle of Man. She is Lord Proprietor and head of state. The title is now Lord of Mann regardless of gender, but, during her reign, Queen Victoria was styled as Lady of Mann.

    Elizabeth II is also Duke of Normandy. In the Channel Islands, the British monarch, regardless of gender, is known as "Duke of Normandy."

    That is how she is known on the Isle of Man, same as she is the Duke of Normandy in the Channel Islands. Part of its status as a self-governing British Crown dependency.  The right of 'Lord Proprietor' was taken to the Crown by the Isle of Man Purchase Act 1765 when George III bought it and declared himself the Lord of Mann.  Queen Victoria elected to call herself the Duke of Lancaster, since duchess is a title by marriage, and so the tradition has continued.

    For many centuries the Stanley family (the Earls of Derby) were feudal Kings or Lords of Mann, but in 1765, the Island was purchased by the British Crown

    .The Queen's Title

    Her Majesty The Queen is therefore Lord Proprietor of the Island and is formally referred to on the Island as 'The Queen, Lord of Mann.'


    The Monarch is officially represented on the Island by the Lieutenant Governor - a position that for many years saw the Governor as the executive head of the Government.

    However changes have been made to the role and these powers of office have been transferred to the Council of Ministers or other departments.

    Today the position of Lieutenant Governor is largely ceremonial, although he does retain some important constitutional duties.

    The chief honcho on the Isle of Man is called the Lord of Mann.  King George III bought the island for £70,000 in 1765 and British monarchs have been Lords of Mann ever since.  Why there's no consistency in the spelling is beyond me - perhaps they're American.
