William de la Pole, 1st Duke of Suffolk was an important medieval English soldier and commander in the Hundred Years' War and later Lord Chamberlain of England. He was created Earl of Pembroke in 1447 and Duke of Suffolk in 1448. He became the principal power behind the throne of the weak and compliant Henry VI and Admiral of England plus several other offices. The following three years saw the near-complete loss of all English possessions in northern France, and Suffolk could not avoid taking the blame for the failures. Arrested and imprisoned in the Tower of London, he was banished for five years, but on his journey to France his ship was intercepted, and he was executed.
