Character description

Thomas Mowbray, Duke of Norfolk (1366?-1399). A younger son, he became Earl of Nottingham when his brother died in 1383. In 1387, he became one of the five "Lords Appellant" who opposed the policies of King Richard II. But he afterward was reconciled with Richard, and even took part in the arrest of another Appellant, the Duke of Gloucester. He was made Duke of Norfolk as a reward. But in 1399 he quarreled with Henry of Bolingbroke, another former Appellant. Richard II allowed them to plan a trial by combat -- then called it off and exiled both men. Mowbray died in Venice later in the year; Bolingbroke invaded England, overthrew Richard, and took the throne as Henry IV.
