About Richard FitzAlan, 1st/6th/8th Earl of Arundel

On the matter of the various numbering systems for the Earls of Arundel, Wikipedia remarks, “ The Earls of Arundel have been numbered differently depending on whether the claims of the first seven to have been Earls by tenancy are accepted. Richard FitzAlan was the first member of the FitzAlan family to be definitely styled Earl of Arundel. He is therefore counted variously as the 1st, 6th or 8th Earl.” See,_1st_Earl_of_Arundel.
