Stuart, Charles, 3rd Duke of Richmond and Lennox (1639 -1672)

Charles Stuart was the only son of George Stuart, ninth seigneur d'Aubigné, youngest son of Esme Stuart, Duke of Lennox. His mother was Catherine eldest daughter of Theophilus Howard, second Earl of Suffolk. He was created, on 10 December 1645, Baron Newbury and 1st Earl of Lichfield, titles which had been intended for his uncle Lord Bernard Howard, but for which he had been unable to find the fees, and on the death of his other uncle, James Duke of Richmond, he succeeded under the entail to the Dukedoms of Lennox, Aubigny and Richmond. He was a Knight of the Garter, and Ambassador to Denmark, where he died at Helsingør 12 December 1673. He was three times married, last to La belle Stuart, mistress to Charles II, but had no children. His titles were then taken into royal hands.
