Streetwise and pound-foolish, these rogues manage to paint over this grim history in the colours of comedy. In fact, Falstaff does not appear on stage in the subsequent play, Henry Valthough his death is referred to. Occasionally, the website mis-applies a block from a previous visitor. The consensus of Shakespeare scholars is that the Dering MS.

Shall we but treason? Thou dost belie him, Percy, thou dost belie him; He never did encounter with Glendower: I tell thee, He durst as well have met the devil alone As Owen Glendower for an enemy. Powerful rebel forces remain in Britain, however, so King Henry must send his sons and his forces to the far reaches of his kingdom to deal with them. The two kings were united by a common interest—to win France from the Catholic League. No; yet time serves wherein you may redeem Your banish'd honours and restore yourselves Into the good thoughts of the world again, Revenge the jeering and disdain'd contempt Of this proud king, who studies day and night To answer all the debt he owes to you Even with the bloody payment of your deaths: Therefore, I say— Earl of Worcester.

The Pope excommunicated Henry and declared him devoid of any right to inherit the crown. All studies here I solemnly defy, Save how to gall and pinch this Bolingbroke: And that same sword-and-buckler Prince of Wales, But that I think his father loves him not And would be glad he met with some mischance, I would have him poison'd with a pot of ale.

Someone Shakespeare marries those lessons with battle scenes, bawdy comedy, and even quiet moments of romance in a way that only he seems able to do.

No longer a tavern brawler but a warrior, the future king prevails, ultimately killing Hotspur in single combat.
