Eleanor de Bohun, Countess of Ormond, was an English noblewoman, the daughter of Humphrey de Bohun, 4th Earl of Hereford, and his wife, born Princess Elizabeth, daughter of King Edward I of England and his first wife, Eleanor of Castile, daughter of Ferdinand III, King of Castile, and Joan, Countess of Ponthieu. She was placed in the care of her aunt, Mary of Woodstock, and brought up at Amesbury Priory following the deaths of her parents. She was married in 1327 to James Butler, 1st Earl of Ormond, who died in 1337 and secondly, in 1343, to Thomas de Dagworth, Lord Dagworth who died in 1352.

She was interred at Saint Mary's Church, in Gowran, Kilkenny, Ireland where her tomb effigy may still be seen. She is not interred at Westminster Abbey in London as it is incorrectly asserted by Wikipedia.
