Philippa Plantagenet, 5th Countess of Ulster, (August 16, 1355 – January 5, 1382), Countess of Ulster suo jure.

Philippa was born in Eltham Palace, Kent, England on August 16, 1355. She was the daughter and only child of Lionel of Antwerp, 1st Duke of Clarence, and Elizabeth de Burgh, 4th Countess of Ulster. Her father was the second son of King Edward III of England by his Queen consort, Philippa of Hainault.

Philippa married Edmund Mortimer, 3rd Earl of March (1351? – December 27, 1381) in about 1368, at Reading Abbey, an alliance that would have far-reaching consequences in English history. As a result of her seniority in the line of succession to the throne of the Kingdom of England and her marriage into the powerful Mortimer family, her descendants eventually succeeded to the throne as the House of York under Edward IV.

She died on January 5, 1382 in Cork, Ireland, and was buried in Wigmore, Herefordshire.
