Daughter of the 3rd Duke of Buckingham, Elizabeth married the powerful Thomas Howard, 3rd Duke of Norfolk, in 1512, thus becoming the most powerful Duchess in the country. She was his second wife; the first, Anne Plantagenet Howard, had perished the previous year. One of her children was Henry, Earl of Surrey and poet. She survived both her husband and her son and, like other Howard women, knew the grief that accompanied belonging to an ambitious and often over-reaching nobility: her father was executed for treason in 1521 and her son for the same reason in 1547.
