|Duke of Norfolk|

|Died||13 December 1677(aged 50)|
|Father||Henry Howard, 15th Earl of Arundel|
|Mother||Lady Elizabeth Stuart|
In 1660 King Charles II, acting on a virtually unanimous petition from the House of Lords, recreated for him the dukedom of Norfolk, which had been forfeited for treason by his great-great-grandfather Thomas Howard in 1572.
Thomas had significant mental disabilities that prevented him from marrying or exercising his privileges as Duke. He spent much of his life in a private asylum in Padua, Italy. Thomas' brother, Sir Henry Howard served as Earl Marshal until Thomas died in 1677, then succeeded him as Duke. Another brother, Philip, became a Catholic cardinal.
