King Henry IV, Part II Overview

King Henry IV, Part Two by William Shakespeare picks up from Henry IV, Part One and follows Prince Hal on his journey to becoming king. The play also follows Sir John Falstaff, a fat, dishonest knight who has befriended Prince Hal. Falstaff is considered to be disreputable company and causes Henry IV to feel that Prince Hal is not ready to be king. Upon Henry IV’s death and the crowning of Prince Hal, Falstaff is excited thinking that he will be granted riches by his friend Hal, but he is sadly mistaken as Hal rejects him stating that he cannot be associated with people of his kind.
