Edmund Holland, 4th Earl of Kent
He married at St. Mary Overy, Southwark, on 24 January 1406 Lucia Visconti (c. 1370 - 4 April 1424), daughter of Bernabò Visconti, Lord of Milan, and wife Beatrice Regina della Scala, without issue. He had an affair with Constance of York and fathered illegitimately Eleanor de Holland born in c. 1406; Eleanor was later married to James Tuchet, 5th Baron Audley.
He was killed at the battle of Île-de-Bréhat on 15 Sep 1408.
He is buried on the island of Lavrec, in the Brehat archipelago. His remains might have been the one discovered there, showing an important warrior, died after a serious wound at the chest.
