Synopsis

The History of Henry the Fourth, is the second of William Shakespeare's history series that deals with the reigns of Richard II, Henry IV (2 plays), and Henry V. These four plays reenact the careers of these three kings.

Henry Bolingbroke (his civil name) deposed the former king Richard II but is not in a great situation: He intended to go on a journey to the Holy Land to fight Moslems, but problems with Scotland and Wales prevent that. He also battles the Earls Northumberland, Worcester and the Earl of March. The first two helped him to his throne, and the third was proclaimed by Richard II as his rightful heir. To add to the troubles, his son the Prince of Wales is hanging out with Sir John Falstaff, a drunkard and corrupt vilain.

All these conflicts and misbehaviours are shown in detail and the play works toward the culmination point, the Battle of Shrewsbury. There the king and his erring and now returning son fight the opponents, win and the play comes to a good end.
