Henry Wriothesley, 3rd Earl of Southampton (Wriothesley is pronounced "Risley"; 6 October 1573 "" 10 November 1624), was the second son of Henry Wriothesley, 2nd Earl of Southampton, and his wife Mary Browne, Countess of Southampton, daughter of the 1st Viscount Montagu. Shakespeare's first two narrative poems, Venus and Adonis and The Rape of Lucrece, were dedicated to Southampton, who is thought by some to be the "Fair Youth" in Shakespeare's Sonnets.
