Thomas of Lancaster, 1st Duke of Clarence, KG (1387 – 22 March 1421), was the second son of King Henry IV of England and his first wife, Mary de Bohun. After the death of his father he participated in the military campaigns of his brother King Henry V.

Heir to the thone in the event of his brother's death, he was left in charge of English forces when Henry returned temporarily to England after his marriage to Catherine of Valois. He led the English in the disastrous Battle of Baugé, against a mainly Scottish force coming to the aid of the French. In a rash attack he and his leading knights were surrounded and Thomas was killed.
