Mortimer, Edmund, 3rd earl of March

Mortimer, Edmund, 3rd earl of March (1352–81). March inherited at the age of 8 and married a daughter of Lionel, duke of Clarence, second son of Edward III, who brought him vast possessions, particularly in Ireland. In 1377, when Richard II succeeded as a child, March was a member of the Regency Council and was influential both in Parliament and in the field, especially in Scottish matters. From 1379 he served as king's lieutenant in Ireland but died in Cork. Through his marriage, March established a family claim to the throne. His great-grandson was Richard, duke of York, whose son gained the throne as Edward IV.

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.
