Richard Temple-Nugent-Brydges-Chandos-Grenville, 1st Duke of Buckingham and Chandos KG, PC (20 March 1776 – 17 January 1839), was the son and successor of George Nugent-Temple-Grenville, 1st Marquess of Buckingham and the grandson of prime minister George Grenville.

He was MP for Buckinghamshire 1797–1813 . He inserted "-Brydges-Chandos-" into his name by Royal Warrant in 1799. In 1806, he was made a Privy Counsellor , and in 1820, a Knight of the Garter. He was created Duke of Buckingham and Chandos in 1822, his wife being only daughter of the 3rd Duke of Chandos; he was in the same patent created Earl Temple of Stowe, with special remainder, which thus survived the extinction of the Dukedom in 1889.
