English Aristocracy. 13th Earl of Warwick. Succeeded to the title in 1401, attaining his majority in 1403. Served the Prince of Wales, who later became Henry V. He spent much of his life fighting in the Hundred Years' War against France, and in 1419 was created Count of Aumale in Normandy. On the death of Henry V, Richard became tutor to the infant King Henry VI, fulfilling this duty in 1437. Afterward he was appointed Lieutenant of Normandy and France, and spent the last years of his life on the continent. He was twice married and was succeeded as Earl by his only son Henry, who was created Duke of Warwick. His tomb is located in the Beauchamp Chapel of the church, which was built by his direction as stated in his will.
