    Following is a brief summary of Henry's entry from the "Dictionary of National Biography" :

    He served with EDWARD I in Flanders in 1297 and 1298. He fought in Scotland several times between 1298 and 1305. In 1315 he, in common with the other lords of the Welsh marches, joined the Earl of Hereford in putting down the rebellion of Llewelyn Bren, and in 1318 he was ordered to bring his Welsh retainers to Newcastle to serve against the Scots.

He is said to have treated the King very humanely. Henry was the guardian of King Edward III during his minority and was the chief member of the council of government. In 1326 he took the lead in opposition to the rule of Queen Isabel and her paramour, ROGER MORTIMER, EARL OF MARCH (RIN 684). Early in the year 1330, following a slow degeneration of his vision, Henry became totally blind. Still, he persuaded the king of the necessity of getting rid of MORTIMER and was the mastermind of the plot which led to MORTIMER'S capture, trial, and execution late in the year. The Earl's blindness, which he bore with patience, forced him to retire from active life; he gave himself wholly to devotion. He was courteous and kindhearted, of sound judgement, religious, and apparently of high
