Edmund Holland, 4th Earl of Kent, 5th Baron Holand, KG (6 January 138415 September 1408) was the Earl of Kent from c. 1400 to c. 1407. He was the 106th Knight of the Order of the Garter in 1403.

Edmund was the second son of Thomas Holland, 2nd Earl of Kent and Alice Fitzalan. His maternal grandparents were Richard Fitzalan, 10th Earl of Arundel and Eleanor of Lancaster. He was a younger brother of Thomas Holland, 1st Duke of Surrey; Edmund succeeded his childless brother as Earl of Kent on 7 January 1400.

He married at St. Mary Overy, Southwark, on 24 January 1406 Lucia Visconti (c. 13704 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.

Edmund was killed at the battle of Île-de-Bréhat on 15 Sep 1408. As he had no legitimate issue, the earldom then became extinct. 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.
