Earl Lloyd-George of Dwyfor is a title in the peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created in 1945 for the celebrated Liberal parliamentarian David Lloyd George who served as Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1908 to 1915 and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1916 to 1922. He was created Viscount Gwynedd, of Dwyfor in the County of Caernarvon, also in the peerage of the United Kingdom, at the same time.


Lloyd George's family name is not hyphenated, although it was required to appear as such in his title, as in other cases such as Andrew Lloyd Webber, Baron Lloyd-Webber.

Both the territorial designations Dwyfor and Gwynedd are ancient Welsh placenames. They were subsequently revived, in 1974, for a local government district and county respectively.

The family titles are currently held by his great-grandson, the 4th Earl, who succeeded his father in 2010.

Two of David Lloyd George's children also earned distinction in public life. His second son the Hon. Gwilym Lloyd George was Home Secretary from 1954 to 1957 before being created Viscount Tenby in 1957; and, his daughter Lady Megan Lloyd George CH MP represented Anglesey and Carmarthen in the House of Commons.

The family seat is Ffynone, near Boncath, Pembrokeshire.
