Exeter, Henry Holand, 2nd duke of

Exeter, Henry Holand, 2nd duke of (1430–75). As a minor, Holand was the ward of Richard of York and married to his daughter. Thomas Percy, Lord Egremont, enveigled him into the feud against the Nevilles in 1454, when Holand claimed that he, not his father-in-law, should be protector during the king's insanity. From 1459, he fought against the Yorkists on land and sea. Attainted in 1461, he attended Queen Margaret in exile, returning with Warwick to restore Henry VI. After the battle of Barnet, he was kept prisoner by Edward IV, his brother-in-law. His wife obtained a divorce and married her lover Thomas St Leger in 1472. Holand was taken to France in the king's expedition in 1475 and reportedly fell overboard on the return voyage.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
