Earl of Lichfield is a title that has been created three times in British history. Lord Bernard Stewart, youngest son of Esm Stewart, 1st Duke of Lennox, was to be created Earl of Lichfield by Charles I for his actions at the battles of Newbury and Naseby but died before the creation could implemented. Charles Stewart, the son of Bernards younger brother George, who had been killed at the Battle of Edgehill, was instead created Earl of Lichfield in December 1645, soon after the Battle of Rowton Heath. Charless cousin, who held the titles of Duke of Richmond and Earl of Lennox through the first Duke of Lennoxs eldest son James, died aged eleven in 1660 with Charles as his heir. He married Frances Teresa Stuart, the celebrated beauty and alleged former mistress of King Charles II. In disgrace with the king, Charles was sent into exile as ambassador to Denmark, where he drowned on December 12, 1672. All of the English and Scottish titles that had been bestowed upon the male heirs became extinct.
