This app contains both Part 1 and Part 2 of King Henry IV.

King Henry IV (Part 1) is the second of Shakespeare’s eight Wars of the Roses history plays, with events following those of King Richard II.

As the play opens, King Henry IV and Henry Percy argue over the disposition of prisoners from the Battle of Holmedon. The King’s attitude toward Mortimer and the Percy family prompts them to plot rebellion.

In the meantime, his son Prince Hal is living the low life in the company of Sir John Falstaff. As the time of battle nears, Prince Hal joins his father and is given a high command.

The play’s climax is the Battle of Shrewsbury, in which Prince Hal and Hotspur meet and fight, with Prince Hal and the forces of the King prevailing. The action continues in King Henry IV, Part 2.

King Henry IV (Part 2) is preceded by Richard II and Henry IV (Part 1) and succeeded by Henry V.

The play picks up where Henry IV (Part 1) left off. Its focus is on Prince Hal’s journey toward kingship and his ultimate rejection of Falstaff.

This has been an extremely popular play both with the public and with critics.

This is the wonderful Shakespeare at its very best!
