Duchess of Clarence, suo jure 4th Countess of Ulster, Baroness of Connaught; sole heiress of the Burkes in Ulster, and progenitor of the Yorkists.

Elizabeth married, "at the Tower of London 15 August 1342 (by agreement dated 5 May 1341)" Lionel of Antwerp, K.G., "of Brimpsfield, Gloucestershire, Chief Governor of Ireland, and, in right of his wife, 5th Earl of Ulster, lord of Clare and Connacht, 3rd but 2nd surviving son of Edward III, King of England, by Philippe, daughter of Guillaume le Bon, Count of Hainault, Holland, and Zeeland, lord of Friesland.... By this marriage, Lionel acquired the vast estates in Ireland of the Burgh family, as well as a large part (including the honour of Clare) of the estates of the Earls of Gloucester and Hertford, in right of his wife's paternal grandmother.... He was created Duke of Clarence 13 Nov. 1362. His wife, Elizabeth, Duchess of Clarence, died at Dublin, Ireland 10 Dec. 1363, and was buried at Bruisyard Abbey, Suffolk."

Needs Development: Profiles from Gilbert de Clare to Elizabeth need to be reviewed and either developed or updated, as do profiles from Elizabeth to a Gateway Ancestor once one is identified. ~ Noland-165 04:25, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
Note - Among the Gateways listed who do not yet have a trail are the Blakistons, Humphrey Davie, and the Harlestons. ~ Noland-165, 5 May 2019
