John of Brittany, Earl of Richmond

John of Brittany or Jean de Bretagne (c. 1266 – 17 January 1334) 3rd Earl of Richmond, was an English nobleman of Breton origin. He entered royal service under Edward I, and fought in the Scottish Wars. On 15 October 1306 he received his father’s title of Earl of Richmond.[3] Although he was generally loyal to Edward II during the times of baronial opposition, he eventually supported the coup of Isabella and Mortimer. He then retired to his estates in France, and for the rest of his life remained politically inactive. for more click here
