Henry Petty-Fitzmaurice, 5th Marquess of Lansdowne

Liberal politician. Born Lansdowne House. Like many of the aristocracy his name changed depending on what he inherited: Viscount Clanmaurice and Earl of Kerry being two early monikers. It was during his time as Foreign Secretary, 1900–1905, that the Entente Cordiale was signed. Leader of the Unionists 1900 - 1916 so we think The Lansdowne Liberal and Radical Club may be named for him but we can't confirm this.  Died in Ireland traveling to his house there.
