      Fought for Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485 where he was wounded and his father killed; following this he was imprisoned in the Tower of London for several years before having some titles and estates restored. Under his command the English crushed the Scots at the Battle of Flodden Field. Lord Surrey and with victory, was restored to his father's title of Duke of Norfolk in 1514, which title had been forfeit since 1485 because of his father's support of Richard.
