Thomas Howard, 5th Duke of Norfolk (9 March 1627 – 13 December 1677) was an English noble.
He was born to Henry Frederick Howard, 22nd Earl of Arundel and Lady Elizabeth Stuart. The dukedom of Norfolk was recreated and given to him in 1660. The 5th Duke was considered mentally deficient and never married. The duties of Earl Marshal were exercised by his brother, Sir Henry Howard, who, in 1677, succeeded him as Duke. Another brother, Philip, became a Catholic cardinal.

“When the Prince of Wales [later King George IV] and the Duke of York went to visit their brother Prince William [later William IV] at Plymouth, and all three being very loose in their manners, and coarse in their language, Prince William said to his ships crew, now I hope you see that I am not the greatest blackguard of my family.”

“Neither by nights ancient fear,
The parting of hat from hair,
Pursed lips at the receiver,
Shall I fall to deaths feather.
By these I would not care to die,
Half convention and half lie.”
—Dylan Thomas (19141953)
