  • Notes 
    • 4th Earl of Ormond. Lieutenant of Ireland. Very strongly Gaelicized, he spoke Irish and was the first Anglo-Irish lord to appoint a brehon. A learned man, he was the patron of the Book of the White Earl, an Irish literary and religious miscellany.

      His political career was marked by a lengthy feud with the Talbot family. Twice, in 1422 and 1447, leading Talbots accused him of treason; he was exonerated on both occasions, although in the second instance both sides were rebuked for "disrupting the good governance of Ireland." Eventually the marriage of his daughter Elizabeth to a Talbot established better relations.
