A marquis (female marquise) is a title held by certain members of the Peerage of Westarctica. In the order of precedence, the rank of marquis falls directly below that of duke/ duchess and directly above that of count/ countess. The territory held by a marquis is called a marquesate.

The title is one of the least-bestowed in Westarctica's peerage and is often only a subordinate title.
