Earl of Kildare. The son of Gerald Garret Mor Fitzgerald, 8th Earl of Kildare and Alison FitzEustace. He was appointed Lord High Treasurer of Ireland in 1504 and served three terms as Lord Deputy. Suspected of disloyalty and corruption, he was made a prisoner in the Tower of London. Rumors of his execution led his son 'Silken Thomas' Fitzgerald to initiate the Kildare Uprising. Although the rumors of execution were unfounded, the 9th Earl died while still a prisoner in the Tower.
