Thomas Howard, 5th Duke of Norfolk (9 March 1627 – 13 December 1677) was an English nobleman.

Thomas Howard was born to Henry Frederick Howard, 22nd Earl of Arundel and Elizabeth Stuart, Countess of Arundel. In 1660, the House of Lords recreated the dukedom of Norfolk and gave it to him.[1]

Thomas had significant mental disabilities that prevented him from marrying or exercising his privileges as Duke. He spent much of his life in a private asylum in Padua, Italy.[2] Thomas' brother, Sir Henry Howard served as Earl Marshal until Thomas died in 1677, then succeeded him as Duke.[3] Another brother, Philip, became a Catholic cardinal.
