Notes
  • A character in three of Shakespeare's plays: Richard II; and 1 and 2 Henry IV.
     
  • In Richard II, Northumberland explains that King Richard has seized Henry of Bolingbroke's inheritance because he needs money: "Wars hath not wasted it, for warr'd he hath not, But basely yielded upon compromise That which his noble ancestors achiev'd with blows. More hath he spent in peace than they in wars." Richard II Act 2, scene 1
