Charles Brandon fathered eight legitimate children: (1) Anne Brandon, Baroness Grey of Powis, (2) Mary Brandon, Baroness Monteagle, (3) Lord Henry Brandon, (4) Lady Frances Brandon, (5) Lady Eleanor Brandon, Countess of Cumberland, (6) Henry Brandon, 1st Earl of Lincoln, (7) Henry Brandon, 2nd Duke of Suffolk, and (8) Charles Brandon, 3rd Duke of Suffolk.  His three known illegitimate children were: (1) Sir Charles Brandon, (2) Frances Brandon, and (3) Mary Brandon.
