    History Richard FitzAlan, 8th Earl of Arundel was an English Norman medieval nobleman. He was the son of John FitzAlan, 7th Earl of Arundel and Isabella Mortimer.
    He was feudal Lord of Clun and Oswestry in the Welsh Marches. After attaining his majority in 1289 he became the 8th Earl of Arundel, by being summoned to Parliament by a writ directed to the Earl of Arundel.
