Albany is Goneril's husband. He is a military man, who is described as being willing to fight for what he believes. Goneril, however, wrongly calls him a coward. Albany is prepared to battle Edmund one-on-one and to make decisions when they need to be made. At the end of the play, he calls for Kent and Edgar, Lear's two most loyal subjects, to rule England.
