King Henry IV, Part I Overview

King Henry IV, Part One by William Shakespeare resumes the story from Shakespeare’s play Richard II. Henry IV and his son Hal join forces and fight against the rebels that have turned against him. They have a strained relationship, largely brought on by Hal’s friendship with the corrupt Falstaff. Henry IV admires the tenacity of Hotspur, the rebel leader, and claims he could possibly be a better heir to the throne. The death of Hotspur signifies victory and the end of the battle for the king’s forces, but the war goes on with the Archbishop of York.
