      Richard, Magna Charta Surety with his son (Sir Gilbert), was 4th Earl of
      Hertford, 3rd Earl of Clare, and Earl of Gloucester via his marriage - thus
      establishing the greatness of the house of Clare. Ernst-Friedrich
      Kraentzler, "The Ancestry of Richard Plantagenet and Cecily de Neville...,"
      (Salt Lake City: Accelerated Indexing Systems, 1978), p. 28, states Richard
