1 [Flourish of trumpets: then hautboys. Enter KING] [p]HENRY VI, GLOUCESTER, SALISBURY, WARWICK, and [p]CARDINAL, on the one side; QUEEN MARGARET, SUFFOLK, [p]YORK, SOMERSET, and BUCKINGHAM, on the other]
 
2 Earl of Suffolk.
3       As by your high imperial majesty
4       I had in charge at my depart for France,
5       As procurator to your excellence,
6       To marry Princess Margaret for your grace,
7       So, in the famous ancient city, Tours,
8       In presence of the Kings of France and Sicil,
9       The Dukes of Orleans, Calaber, Bretagne and Alencon,
10       Seven earls, twelve barons and twenty reverend bishops,
11       I have perform'd my task and was espoused:
12       And humbly now upon my bended knee,
13       In sight of England and her lordly peers,
14       Deliver up my title in the queen
15       To your most gracious hands, that are the substance
16       Of that great shadow I did represent;
17       The happiest gift that ever marquess gave,
18       The fairest queen that ever king received.
19 Henry VI.
20       Suffolk, arise. Welcome, Queen Margaret:
21       I can express no kinder sign of love
22       Than this kind kiss. O Lord, that lends me life,
23       Lend me a heart replete with thankfulness!
24       For thou hast given me in this beauteous face
25       A world of earthly blessings to my soul,
26       If sympathy of love unite our thoughts.
27 Queen Margaret.
28       Great King of England and my gracious lord,
29       The mutual conference that my mind hath had,
30       By day, by night, waking and in my dreams,
31       In courtly company or at my beads,
32       With you, mine alder-liefest sovereign,
33       Makes me the bolder to salute my king
34       With ruder terms, such as my wit affords
35       And over-joy of heart doth minister.
36 Henry VI.
37       Her sight did ravish; but her grace in speech,
38       Her words y-clad with wisdom's majesty,
39       Makes me from wondering fall to weeping joys;
40       Such is the fulness of my heart's content.
41       Lords, with one cheerful voice welcome my love.
42 All.
43       [Kneeling]Long live Queen Margaret, England's
44       happiness!
45 Queen Margaret.
46       We thank you all.
 
47 [Flourish]
 
48 Earl of Suffolk.
49       My lord protector, so it please your grace,
50       Here are the articles of contracted peace
51       Between our sovereign and the French king Charles,
52       For eighteen months concluded by consent.
53 Duke of Gloucester.
54       [Reads]'Imprimis, it is agreed between the French
55       king Charles, and William de la Pole, Marquess of
56       Suffolk, ambassador for Henry King of England, that
57       the said Henry shall espouse the Lady Margaret,
58       daughter unto Reignier King of Naples, Sicilia and
59       Jerusalem, and crown her Queen of England ere the
60       thirtieth of May next ensuing. Item, that the duchy
61       of Anjou and the county of Maine shall be released
62       and delivered to the king her father'—
 
63 [Lets the paper fall]
 
64 Henry VI.
65       Uncle, how now!
66 Duke of Gloucester.
67       Pardon me, gracious lord;
68       Some sudden qualm hath struck me at the heart
69       And dimm'd mine eyes, that I can read no further.
70 Henry VI.
71       Uncle of Winchester, I pray, read on.
72 Winchester.
73       [Reads]'Item, It is further agreed between them,
74       that the duchies of Anjou and Maine shall be
75       released and delivered over to the king her father,
76       and she sent over of the King of England's own
77       proper cost and charges, without having any dowry.'
78 Henry VI.
79       They please us well. Lord marquess, kneel down:
80       We here create thee the first duke of Suffolk,
81       And gird thee with the sword. Cousin of York,
82       We here discharge your grace from being regent
83       I' the parts of France, till term of eighteen months
84       Be full expired. Thanks, uncle Winchester,
85       Gloucester, York, Buckingham, Somerset,
86       Salisbury, and Warwick;
87       We thank you all for the great favour done,
88       In entertainment to my princely queen.
89       Come, let us in, and with all speed provide
90       To see her coronation be perform'd.
 
91 [Exeunt KING HENRY VI, QUEEN MARGARET, and SUFFOLK]
 
92 Duke of Gloucester.
93       Brave peers of England, pillars of the state,
94       To you Duke Humphrey must unload his grief,
95       Your grief, the common grief of all the land.
96       What! did my brother Henry spend his youth,
97       His valour, coin and people, in the wars?
98       Did he so often lodge in open field,
99       In winter's cold and summer's parching heat,
100       To conquer France, his true inheritance?
101       And did my brother Bedford toil his wits,
102       To keep by policy what Henry got?
103       Have you yourselves, Somerset, Buckingham,
104       Brave York, Salisbury, and victorious Warwick,
105       Received deep scars in France and Normandy?
106       Or hath mine uncle Beaufort and myself,
107       With all the learned council of the realm,
108       Studied so long, sat in the council-house
109       Early and late, debating to and fro
110       How France and Frenchmen might be kept in awe,
111       And had his highness in his infancy
112       Crowned in Paris in despite of foes?
113       And shall these labours and these honours die?
114       Shall Henry's conquest, Bedford's vigilance,
115       Your deeds of war and all our counsel die?
116       O peers of England, shameful is this league!
117       Fatal this marriage, cancelling your fame,
118       Blotting your names from books of memory,
119       Razing the characters of your renown,
120       Defacing monuments of conquer'd France,
121       Undoing all, as all had never been!
122 Winchester.
123       Nephew, what means this passionate discourse,
124       This peroration with such circumstance?
125       For France, 'tis ours; and we will keep it still.
126 Duke of Gloucester.
127       Ay, uncle, we will keep it, if we can;
128       But now it is impossible we should:
129       Suffolk, the new-made duke that rules the roast,
130       Hath given the duchy of Anjou and Maine
131       Unto the poor King Reignier, whose large style
132       Agrees not with the leanness of his purse.
133 Earl of Salisbury.
134       Now, by the death of Him that died for all,
135       These counties were the keys of Normandy.
136       But wherefore weeps Warwick, my valiant son?
137 Earl of Warwick.
138       For grief that they are past recovery:
139       For, were there hope to conquer them again,
140       My sword should shed hot blood, mine eyes no tears.
141       Anjou and Maine! myself did win them both;
142       Those provinces these arms of mine did conquer:
143       And are the cities, that I got with wounds,
144       Delivered up again with peaceful words?
145       Mort Dieu!
146 Richard Plantagenet (Duke of Gloucester).
147       For Suffolk's duke, may he be suffocate,
148       That dims the honour of this warlike isle!
149       France should have torn and rent my very heart,
150       Before I would have yielded to this league.
151       I never read but England's kings have had
152       Large sums of gold and dowries with their wives:
153       And our King Henry gives away his own,
154       To match with her that brings no vantages.
155 Duke of Gloucester.
156       A proper jest, and never heard before,
157       That Suffolk should demand a whole fifteenth
158       For costs and charges in transporting her!
159       She should have stayed in France and starved
160       in France, Before
161 Winchester.
162       My Lord of Gloucester, now ye grow too hot:
163       It was the pleasure of my lord the King.
164 Duke of Gloucester.
165       My Lord of Winchester, I know your mind;
166       'Tis not my speeches that you do mislike,
167       But 'tis my presence that doth trouble ye.
168       Rancour will out: proud prelate, in thy face
169       I see thy fury: if I longer stay,
170       We shall begin our ancient bickerings.
171       Lordings, farewell; and say, when I am gone,
172       I prophesied France will be lost ere long.
 
173 [Exit]
 
174 Winchester.
175       So, there goes our protector in a rage.
176       'Tis known to you he is mine enemy,
177       Nay, more, an enemy unto you all,
178       And no great friend, I fear me, to the king.
179       Consider, lords, he is the next of blood,
180       And heir apparent to the English crown:
181       Had Henry got an empire by his marriage,
182       And all the wealthy kingdoms of the west,
183       There's reason he should be displeased at it.
184       Look to it, lords! let not his smoothing words
185       Bewitch your hearts; be wise and circumspect.
186       What though the common people favour him,
187       Calling him 'Humphrey, the good Duke of
188       Gloucester,'
189       Clapping their hands, and crying with loud voice,
190       'Jesu maintain your royal excellence!'
191       With 'God preserve the good Duke Humphrey!'
192       I fear me, lords, for all this flattering gloss,
193       He will be found a dangerous protector.
194 Duke of Buckingham.
195       Why should he, then, protect our sovereign,
196       He being of age to govern of himself?
197       Cousin of Somerset, join you with me,
198       And all together, with the Duke of Suffolk,
199       We'll quickly hoise Duke Humphrey from his seat.
200 Winchester.
201       This weighty business will not brook delay:
202       I'll to the Duke of Suffolk presently.
 
203 [Exit]
 
204 Duke/Earl of Somerset.
205       Cousin of Buckingham, though Humphrey's pride
206       And greatness of his place be grief to us,
207       Yet let us watch the haughty cardinal:
208       His insolence is more intolerable
209       Than all the princes in the land beside:
210       If Gloucester be displaced, he'll be protector.
211 Duke of Buckingham.
212       Or thou or I, Somerset, will be protector,
213       Despite Duke Humphrey or the cardinal.
 
214 [Exeunt BUCKINGHAM and SOMERSET]
 
215 Earl of Salisbury.
216       Pride went before, ambition follows him.
217       While these do labour for their own preferment,
218       Behoves it us to labour for the realm.
219       I never saw but Humphrey Duke of Gloucester
220       Did bear him like a noble gentleman.
221       Oft have I seen the haughty cardinal,
222       More like a soldier than a man o' the church,
223       As stout and proud as he were lord of all,
224       Swear like a ruffian and demean himself
225       Unlike the ruler of a commonweal.
226       Warwick, my son, the comfort of my age,
227       Thy deeds, thy plainness and thy housekeeping,
228       Hath won the greatest favour of the commons,
229       Excepting none but good Duke Humphrey:
230       And, brother York, thy acts in Ireland,
231       In bringing them to civil discipline,
232       Thy late exploits done in the heart of France,
233       When thou wert regent for our sovereign,
234       Have made thee fear'd and honour'd of the people:
235       Join we together, for the public good,
236       In what we can, to bridle and suppress
237       The pride of Suffolk and the cardinal,
238       With Somerset's and Buckingham's ambition;
239       And, as we may, cherish Duke Humphrey's deeds,
240       While they do tend the profit of the land.
241 Earl of Warwick.
242       So God help Warwick, as he loves the land,
243       And common profit of his country!
244 Richard Plantagenet (Duke of Gloucester).
245       [Aside]And so says York, for he hath greatest cause.
246 Earl of Salisbury.
247       Then let's make haste away, and look unto the main.
248 Earl of Warwick.
249       Unto the main! O father, Maine is lost;
250       That Maine which by main force Warwick did win,
251       And would have kept so long as breath did last!
252       Main chance, father, you meant; but I meant Maine,
253       Which I will win from France, or else be slain,
 
254 [Exeunt WARWICK and SALISBURY]
 
255 Richard Plantagenet (Duke of Gloucester).
256       Anjou and Maine are given to the French;
257       Paris is lost; the state of Normandy
258       Stands on a tickle point, now they are gone:
259       Suffolk concluded on the articles,
260       The peers agreed, and Henry was well pleased
261       To change two dukedoms for a duke's fair daughter.
262       I cannot blame them all: what is't to them?
263       'Tis thine they give away, and not their own.
264       Pirates may make cheap pennyworths of their pillage
265       And purchase friends and give to courtezans,
266       Still revelling like lords till all be gone;
267       While as the silly owner of the goods
268       Weeps over them and wrings his hapless hands
269       And shakes his head and trembling stands aloof,
270       While all is shared and all is borne away,
271       Ready to starve and dare not touch his own:
272       So York must sit and fret and bite his tongue,
273       While his own lands are bargain'd for and sold.
274       Methinks the realms of England, France and Ireland
275       Bear that proportion to my flesh and blood
276       As did the fatal brand Althaea burn'd
277       Unto the prince's heart of Calydon.
278       Anjou and Maine both given unto the French!
279       Cold news for me, for I had hope of France,
280       Even as I have of fertile England's soil.
281       A day will come when York shall claim his own;
282       And therefore I will take the Nevils' parts
283       And make a show of love to proud Duke Humphrey,
284       And, when I spy advantage, claim the crown,
285       For that's the golden mark I seek to hit:
286       Nor shall proud Lancaster usurp my right,
287       Nor hold the sceptre in his childish fist,
288       Nor wear the diadem upon his head,
289       Whose church-like humours fits not for a crown.
290       Then, York, be still awhile, till time do serve:
291       Watch thou and wake when others be asleep,
292       To pry into the secrets of the state;
293       Till Henry, surfeiting in joys of love,
294       With his new bride and England's dear-bought queen,
295       And Humphrey with the peers be fall'n at jars:
296       Then will I raise aloft the milk-white rose,
297       With whose sweet smell the air shall be perfumed;
298       And in my standard bear the arms of York
299       To grapple with the house of Lancaster;
300       And, force perforce, I'll make him yield the crown,
301       Whose bookish rule hath pull'd fair England down.
 
302 [Exit]
 

2. Act I, Scene 2

0 GLOUCESTER’S house.
 
1 [Enter GLOUCESTER and his DUCHESS]
 
2 Eleanor.
3       Why droops my lord, like over-ripen'd corn,
4       Hanging the head at Ceres' plenteous load?
5       Why doth the great Duke Humphrey knit his brows,
6       As frowning at the favours of the world?
7       Why are thine eyes fixed to the sullen earth,
8       Gazing on that which seems to dim thy sight?
9       What seest thou there? King Henry's diadem,
10       Enchased with all the honours of the world?
11       If so, gaze on, and grovel on thy face,
12       Until thy head be circled with the same.
13       Put forth thy hand, reach at the glorious gold.
14       What, is't too short? I'll lengthen it with mine:
15       And, having both together heaved it up,
16       We'll both together lift our heads to heaven,
17       And never more abase our sight so low
18       As to vouchsafe one glance unto the ground.
19 Duke of Gloucester.
20       O Nell, sweet Nell, if thou dost love thy lord,
21       Banish the canker of ambitious thoughts.
22       And may that thought, when I imagine ill
23       Against my king and nephew, virtuous Henry,
24       Be my last breathing in this mortal world!
25       My troublous dream this night doth make me sad.
26 Eleanor.
27       What dream'd my lord? tell me, and I'll requite it
28       With sweet rehearsal of my morning's dream.
29 Duke of Gloucester.
30       Methought this staff, mine office-badge in court,
31       Was broke in twain; by whom I have forgot,
32       But, as I think, it was by the cardinal;
33       And on the pieces of the broken wand
34       Were placed the heads of Edmund Duke of Somerset,
35       And William de la Pole, first duke of Suffolk.
36       This was my dream: what it doth bode, God knows.
37 Eleanor.
38       Tut, this was nothing but an argument
39       That he that breaks a stick of Gloucester's grove
40       Shall lose his head for his presumption.
41       But list to me, my Humphrey, my sweet duke:
42       Methought I sat in seat of majesty
43       In the cathedral church of Westminster,
44       And in that chair where kings and queens are crown'd;
45       Where Henry and dame Margaret kneel'd to me
46       And on my head did set the diadem.
47 Duke of Gloucester.
48       Nay, Eleanor, then must I chide outright:
49       Presumptuous dame, ill-nurtured Eleanor,
50       Art thou not second woman in the realm,
51       And the protector's wife, beloved of him?
52       Hast thou not worldly pleasure at command,
53       Above the reach or compass of thy thought?
54       And wilt thou still be hammering treachery,
55       To tumble down thy husband and thyself
56       From top of honour to disgrace's feet?
57       Away from me, and let me hear no more!
58 Eleanor.
59       What, what, my lord! are you so choleric
60       With Eleanor, for telling but her dream?
61       Next time I'll keep my dreams unto myself,
62       And not be cheque'd.
63 Duke of Gloucester.
64       Nay, be not angry; I am pleased again.
 
65 [Enter Messenger]
 
66 Messenger.
67       My lord protector, 'tis his highness' pleasure
68       You do prepare to ride unto Saint Alban's,
69       Where as the king and queen do mean to hawk.
70 Duke of Gloucester.
71       I go. Come, Nell, thou wilt ride with us?
72 Eleanor.
73       Yes, my good lord, I'll follow presently.
74       [Exeunt GLOUCESTER and Messenger]
75       Follow I must; I cannot go before,
76       While Gloucester bears this base and humble mind.
77       Were I a man, a duke, and next of blood,
78       I would remove these tedious stumbling-blocks
79       And smooth my way upon their headless necks;
80       And, being a woman, I will not be slack
81       To play my part in Fortune's pageant.
82       Where are you there? Sir John! nay, fear not, man,
83       We are alone; here's none but thee and I.
 
84 [Enter HUME]
 
85 Father John Hume.
86       Jesus preserve your royal majesty!
87 Eleanor.
88       What say'st thou? majesty! I am but grace.
89 Father John Hume.
90       But, by the grace of God, and Hume's advice,
91       Your grace's title shall be multiplied.
92 Eleanor.
93       What say'st thou, man? hast thou as yet conferr'd
94       With Margery Jourdain, the cunning witch,
95       With Roger Bolingbroke, the conjurer?
96       And will they undertake to do me good?
97 Father John Hume.
98       This they have promised, to show your highness
99       A spirit raised from depth of under-ground,
100       That shall make answer to such questions
101       As by your grace shall be propounded him.
102 Eleanor.
103       It is enough; I'll think upon the questions:
104       When from St. Alban's we do make return,
105       We'll see these things effected to the full.
106       Here, Hume, take this reward; make merry, man,
107       With thy confederates in this weighty cause.
 
108 [Exit]
 
109 Father John Hume.
110       Hume must make merry with the duchess' gold;
111       Marry, and shall. But how now, Sir John Hume!
112       Seal up your lips, and give no words but mum:
113       The business asketh silent secrecy.
114       Dame Eleanor gives gold to bring the witch:
115       Gold cannot come amiss, were she a devil.
116       Yet have I gold flies from another coast;
117       I dare not say, from the rich cardinal
118       And from the great and new-made Duke of Suffolk,
119       Yet I do find it so; for to be plain,
120       They, knowing Dame Eleanor's aspiring humour,
121       Have hired me to undermine the duchess
122       And buz these conjurations in her brain.
123       They say 'A crafty knave does need no broker;'
124       Yet am I Suffolk and the cardinal's broker.
125       Hume, if you take not heed, you shall go near
126       To call them both a pair of crafty knaves.
127       Well, so it stands; and thus, I fear, at last
128       Hume's knavery will be the duchess' wreck,
129       And her attainture will be Humphrey's fall:
130       Sort how it will, I shall have gold for all.
 
131 [Exit]
 

3. Act I, Scene 3

0 The palace.
 
1 [Enter three or four Petitioners, PETER, the] [p]Armourer's man, being one]
 
2 First Petitioner.
3       My masters, let's stand close: my lord protector
4       will come this way by and by, and then we may deliver
5       our supplications in the quill.
6 Second Petitioner.
7       Marry, the Lord protect him, for he's a good man!
8       Jesu bless him!
 
9 [Enter SUFFOLK and QUEEN MARGARET]
10 Peter.
11       Here a' comes, methinks, and the queen with him.
12       I'll be the first, sure.
13 Second Petitioner.
14       Come back, fool; this is the Duke of Suffolk, and
15       not my lord protector.
16 Earl of Suffolk.
17       How now, fellow! would'st anything with me?
18 First Petitioner.
19       I pray, my lord, pardon me; I took ye for my lord
20       protector.
21 Queen Margaret.
22       [Reading]'To my Lord Protector!' Are your
23       supplications to his lordship? Let me see them:
24       what is thine?
25 First Petitioner.
26       Mine is, an't please your grace, against John
27       Goodman, my lord cardinal's man, for keeping my
28       house, and lands, and wife and all, from me.
29 Earl of Suffolk.
30       Thy wife, too! that's some wrong, indeed. What's
31       yours? What's here!
32       [Reads]
33       'Against the Duke of Suffolk, for enclosing the
34       commons of Melford.' How now, sir knave!
35 Second Petitioner.
36       Alas, sir, I am but a poor petitioner of our whole township.
37 Peter.
38       [Giving his petition]Against my master, Thomas
39       Horner, for saying that the Duke of York was rightful
40       heir to the crown.
41 Queen Margaret.
42       What sayst thou? did the Duke of York say he was
43       rightful heir to the crown?
44 Peter.
45       That my master was? no, forsooth: my master said
46       that he was, and that the king was an usurper.
47 Earl of Suffolk.
48       Who is there?
49       [Enter Servant]
50       Take this fellow in, and send for
51       his master with a pursuivant presently: we'll hear
52       more of your matter before the King.
 
53 [Exit Servant with PETER]
 
54 Queen Margaret.
55       And as for you, that love to be protected
56       Under the wings of our protector's grace,
57       Begin your suits anew, and sue to him.
58       [Tears the supplication]
59       Away, base cullions! Suffolk, let them go.
60 All.
61       Come, let's be gone.
 
62 [Exeunt]
 
63 Queen Margaret.
64       My Lord of Suffolk, say, is this the guise,
65       Is this the fashion in the court of England?
66       Is this the government of Britain's isle,
67       And this the royalty of Albion's king?
68       What shall King Henry be a pupil still
69       Under the surly Gloucester's governance?
70       Am I a queen in title and in style,
71       And must be made a subject to a duke?
72       I tell thee, Pole, when in the city Tours
73       Thou ran'st a tilt in honour of my love
74       And stolest away the ladies' hearts of France,
75       I thought King Henry had resembled thee
76       In courage, courtship and proportion:
77       But all his mind is bent to holiness,
78       To number Ave-Maries on his beads;
79       His champions are the prophets and apostles,
80       His weapons holy saws of sacred writ,
81       His study is his tilt-yard, and his loves
82       Are brazen images of canonized saints.
83       I would the college of the cardinals
84       Would choose him pope, and carry him to Rome,
85       And set the triple crown upon his head:
86       That were a state fit for his holiness.
87 Earl of Suffolk.
88       Madam, be patient: as I was cause
89       Your highness came to England, so will I
90       In England work your grace's full content.
91 Queen Margaret.
92       Beside the haughty protector, have we Beaufort,
93       The imperious churchman, Somerset, Buckingham,
94       And grumbling York: and not the least of these
95       But can do more in England than the king.
96 Earl of Suffolk.
97       And he of these that can do most of all
98       Cannot do more in England than the Nevils:
99       Salisbury and Warwick are no simple peers.
100 Queen Margaret.
101       Not all these lords do vex me half so much
102       As that proud dame, the lord protector's wife.
103       She sweeps it through the court with troops of ladies,
104       More like an empress than Duke Humphrey's wife:
105       Strangers in court do take her for the queen:
106       She bears a duke's revenues on her back,
107       And in her heart she scorns our poverty:
108       Shall I not live to be avenged on her?
109       Contemptuous base-born callet as she is,
110       She vaunted 'mongst her minions t'other day,
111       The very train of her worst wearing gown
112       Was better worth than all my father's lands,
113       Till Suffolk gave two dukedoms for his daughter.
114 Earl of Suffolk.
115       Madam, myself have limed a bush for her,
116       And placed a quire of such enticing birds,
117       That she will light to listen to the lays,
118       And never mount to trouble you again.
119       So, let her rest: and, madam, list to me;
120       For I am bold to counsel you in this.
121       Although we fancy not the cardinal,
122       Yet must we join with him and with the lords,
123       Till we have brought Duke Humphrey in disgrace.
124       As for the Duke of York, this late complaint
125       Will make but little for his benefit.
126       So, one by one, we'll weed them all at last,
127       And you yourself shall steer the happy helm.
128       [Sound a sennet. Enter KING HENRY VI, GLOUCESTER,]
129       CARDINAL, BUCKINGHAM, YORK, SOMERSET, SALISBURY,
130       WARWICK, and the DUCHESS]
131 Henry VI.
132       For my part, noble lords, I care not which;
133       Or Somerset or York, all's one to me.
134 Richard Plantagenet (Duke of Gloucester).
135       If York have ill demean'd himself in France,
136       Then let him be denay'd the regentship.
137 Duke/Earl of Somerset.
138       If Somerset be unworthy of the place,
139       Let York be regent; I will yield to him.
140 Earl of Warwick.
141       Whether your grace be worthy, yea or no,
142       Dispute not that: York is the worthier.
143 Winchester.
144       Ambitious Warwick, let thy betters speak.
145 Earl of Warwick.
146       The cardinal's not my better in the field.
147 Duke of Buckingham.
148       All in this presence are thy betters, Warwick.
149 Earl of Warwick.
150       Warwick may live to be the best of all.
151 Earl of Salisbury.
152       Peace, son! and show some reason, Buckingham,
153       Why Somerset should be preferred in this.
154 Queen Margaret.
155       Because the king, forsooth, will have it so.
156 Duke of Gloucester.
157       Madam, the king is old enough himself
158       To give his censure: these are no women's matters.
159 Queen Margaret.
160       If he be old enough, what needs your grace
161       To be protector of his excellence?
162 Duke of Gloucester.
163       Madam, I am protector of the realm;
164       And, at his pleasure, will resign my place.
165 Earl of Suffolk.
166       Resign it then and leave thine insolence.
167       Since thou wert kingas who is king but thou?—
168       The commonwealth hath daily run to wreck;
169       The Dauphin hath prevail'd beyond the seas;
170       And all the peers and nobles of the realm
171       Have been as bondmen to thy sovereignty.
172 Winchester.
173       The commons hast thou rack'd; the clergy's bags
174       Are lank and lean with thy extortions.
175 Duke/Earl of Somerset.
176       Thy sumptuous buildings and thy wife's attire
177       Have cost a mass of public treasury.
178 Duke of Buckingham.
179       Thy cruelty in execution
180       Upon offenders, hath exceeded law,
181       And left thee to the mercy of the law.
182 Queen Margaret.
183       They sale of offices and towns in France,
184       If they were known, as the suspect is great,
185       Would make thee quickly hop without thy head.
186       [Exit GLOUCESTER. QUEEN MARGARET drops her fan]
187       Give me my fan: what, minion! can ye not?
188       [She gives the DUCHESS a box on the ear]
189       I cry you mercy, madam; was it you?
190 Eleanor.
191       Was't I! yea, I it was, proud Frenchwoman:
192       Could I come near your beauty with my nails,
193       I'd set my ten commandments in your face.
194 Henry VI.
195       Sweet aunt, be quiet; 'twas against her will.
196 Eleanor.
197       Against her will! good king, look to't in time;
198       She'll hamper thee, and dandle thee like a baby:
199       Though in this place most master wear no breeches,
200       She shall not strike Dame Eleanor unrevenged.
 
201 [Exit]
 
202 Duke of Buckingham.
203       Lord cardinal, I will follow Eleanor,
204       And listen after Humphrey, how he proceeds:
205       She's tickled now; her fume needs no spurs,
206       She'll gallop far enough to her destruction.
 
207 [Exit]
 
208 [Re-enter GLOUCESTER]
 
209 Duke of Gloucester.
210       Now, lords, my choler being over-blown
211       With walking once about the quadrangle,
212       I come to talk of commonwealth affairs.
213       As for your spiteful false objections,
214       Prove them, and I lie open to the law:
215       But God in mercy so deal with my soul,
216       As I in duty love my king and country!
217       But, to the matter that we have in hand:
218       I say, my sovereign, York is meetest man
219       To be your regent in the realm of France.
220 Earl of Suffolk.
221       Before we make election, give me leave
222       To show some reason, of no little force,
223       That York is most unmeet of any man.
224 Richard Plantagenet (Duke of Gloucester).
225       I'll tell thee, Suffolk, why I am unmeet:
226       First, for I cannot flatter thee in pride;
227       Next, if I be appointed for the place,
228       My Lord of Somerset will keep me here,
229       Without discharge, money, or furniture,
230       Till France be won into the Dauphin's hands:
231       Last time, I danced attendance on his will
232       Till Paris was besieged, famish'd, and lost.
233 Earl of Warwick.
234       That can I witness; and a fouler fact
235       Did never traitor in the land commit.
236 Earl of Suffolk.
237       Peace, headstrong Warwick!
238 Earl of Warwick.
239       Image of pride, why should I hold my peace?
240       [Enter HORNER, the Armourer, and his man]
241       PETER, guarded]
242 Earl of Suffolk.
243       Because here is a man accused of treason:
244       Pray God the Duke of York excuse himself!
245 Richard Plantagenet (Duke of Gloucester).
246       Doth any one accuse York for a traitor?
247 Henry VI.
248       What mean'st thou, Suffolk; tell me, what are these?
249 Earl of Suffolk.
250       Please it your majesty, this is the man
251       That doth accuse his master of high treason:
252       His words were these: that Richard, Duke of York,
253       Was rightful heir unto the English crown
254       And that your majesty was a usurper.
255 Henry VI.
256       Say, man, were these thy words?
257 Thomas Horner.
258       An't shall please your majesty, I never said nor
259       thought any such matter: God is my witness, I am
260       falsely accused by the villain.
261 Peter.
262       By these ten bones, my lords, he did speak them to
263       me in the garret one night, as we were scouring my
264       Lord of York's armour.
265 Richard Plantagenet (Duke of Gloucester).
266       Base dunghill villain and mechanical,
267       I'll have thy head for this thy traitor's speech.
268       I do beseech your royal majesty,
269       Let him have all the rigor of the law.
270 Thomas Horner.
271       Alas, my lord, hang me, if ever I spake the words.
272       My accuser is my 'prentice; and when I did correct
273       him for his fault the other day, he did vow upon his
274       knees he would be even with me: I have good
275       witness of this: therefore I beseech your majesty,
276       do not cast away an honest man for a villain's
277       accusation.
278 Henry VI.
279       Uncle, what shall we say to this in law?
280 Duke of Gloucester.
281       This doom, my lord, if I may judge:
282       Let Somerset be regent over the French,
283       Because in York this breeds suspicion:
284       And let these have a day appointed them
285       For single combat in convenient place,
286       For he hath witness of his servant's malice:
287       This is the law, and this Duke Humphrey's doom.
288 Duke/Earl of Somerset.
289       I humbly thank your royal majesty.
290 Thomas Horner.
291       And I accept the combat willingly.
292 Peter.
293       Alas, my lord, I cannot fight; for God's sake, pity
294       my case. The spite of man prevaileth against me. O
295       Lord, have mercy upon me! I shall never be able to
296       fight a blow. O Lord, my heart!
297 Duke of Gloucester.
298       Sirrah, or you must fight, or else be hang'd.
299 Henry VI.
300       Away with them to prison; and the day of combat
301       shall be the last of the next month. Come,
302       Somerset, we'll see thee sent away.
 
303 [Flourish. Exeunt]
 

4. Act I, Scene 4

0 GLOUCESTER’s garden.
 
1 [Enter MARGARET JOURDAIN, HUME, SOUTHWELL, and BOLINGBROKE]
 
2 Father John Hume.
3       Come, my masters; the duchess, I tell you, expects
4       performance of your promises.
5 Bolingbroke.
6       Master Hume, we are therefore provided: will her
7       ladyship behold and hear our exorcisms?
8 Father John Hume.
9       Ay, what else? fear you not her courage.
10 Bolingbroke.
11       I have heard her reported to be a woman of an
12       invincible spirit: but it shall be convenient,
13       Master Hume, that you be by her aloft, while we be
14       busy below; and so, I pray you, go, in God's name,
15       and leave us.
16       [Exit HUME]
17       Mother Jourdain, be you
18       prostrate and grovel on the earth; John Southwell,
19       read you; and let us to our work.
 
20 [Enter the DUCHESS aloft, HUME following]
 
21 Eleanor.
22       Well said, my masters; and welcome all. To this
23       gear the sooner the better.
24 Bolingbroke.
25       Patience, good lady; wizards know their times:
26       Deep night, dark night, the silent of the night,
27       The time of night when Troy was set on fire;
28       The time when screech-owls cry and ban-dogs howl,
29       And spirits walk and ghosts break up their graves,
30       That time best fits the work we have in hand.
31       Madam, sit you and fear not: whom we raise,
32       We will make fast within a hallow'd verge.
33       [Here they do the ceremonies belonging, and make the]
34       circle; BOLINGBROKE or SOUTHWELL reads, Conjuro te,
35       &c. It thunders and lightens terribly; then the
36       Spirit riseth]
37 Spirit.
38       Adsum.
39 Margaret Jourdain.
40       Asmath,
41       By the eternal God, whose name and power
42       Thou tremblest at, answer that I shall ask;
43       For, till thou speak, thou shalt not pass from hence.
44 Spirit.
45       Ask what thou wilt. That I had said and done!
46 Bolingbroke.
47       'First of the king: what shall of him become?'
 
48 [Reading out of a paper]
 
49 Spirit.
50       The duke yet lives that Henry shall depose;
51       But him outlive, and die a violent death.
 
52 [As the Spirit speaks, SOUTHWELL writes the answer]
 
53 Bolingbroke.
54       'What fates await the Duke of Suffolk?'
55 Spirit.
56       By water shall he die, and take his end.
57 Bolingbroke.
58       'What shall befall the Duke of Somerset?'
59 Spirit.
60       Let him shun castles;
61       Safer shall he be upon the sandy plains
62       Than where castles mounted stand.
63       Have done, for more I hardly can endure.
64 Bolingbroke.
65       Descend to darkness and the burning lake!
66       False fiend, avoid!
67       [Thunder and lightning. Exit Spirit]
68       [Enter YORK and BUCKINGHAM with their Guard]
69       and break in]
70 Richard Plantagenet (Duke of Gloucester).
71       Lay hands upon these traitors and their trash.
72       Beldam, I think we watch'd you at an inch.
73       What, madam, are you there? the king and commonweal
74       Are deeply indebted for this piece of pains:
75       My lord protector will, I doubt it not,
76       See you well guerdon'd for these good deserts.
77 Eleanor.
78       Not half so bad as thine to England's king,
79       Injurious duke, that threatest where's no cause.
80 Duke of Buckingham.
81       True, madam, none at all: what call you this?
82       Away with them! let them be clapp'd up close.
83       And kept asunder. You, madam, shall with us.
84       Stafford, take her to thee.
85       [Exeunt above DUCHESS and HUME, guarded]
86       We'll see your trinkets here all forthcoming.
87       All, away!
 
88 [Exeunt guard with MARGARET JOURDAIN, SOUTHWELL, &c]
 
89 Richard Plantagenet (Duke of Gloucester).
90       Lord Buckingham, methinks, you watch'd her well:
91       A pretty plot, well chosen to build upon!
92       Now, pray, my lord, let's see the devil's writ.
93       What have we here?
94       [Reads]
95       'The duke yet lives, that Henry shall depose;
96       But him outlive, and die a violent death.'
97       Why, this is just
98       'Aio te, AEacida, Romanos vincere posse.'
99       Well, to the rest:
100       'Tell me what fate awaits the Duke of Suffolk?
101       By water shall he die, and take his end.
102       What shall betide the Duke of Somerset?
103       Let him shun castles;
104       Safer shall he be upon the sandy plains
105       Than where castles mounted stand.'
106       Come, come, my lords;
107       These oracles are hardly attain'd,
108       And hardly understood.
109       The king is now in progress towards Saint Alban's,
110       With him the husband of this lovely lady:
111       Thither go these news, as fast as horse can
112       carry them:
113       A sorry breakfast for my lord protector.
114 Duke of Buckingham.
115       Your grace shall give me leave, my Lord of York,
116       To be the post, in hope of his reward.
117 Richard Plantagenet (Duke of Gloucester).
118       At your pleasure, my good lord. Who's within
119       there, ho!
120       [Enter a Servingman]
121       Invite my Lords of Salisbury and Warwick
122       To sup with me to-morrow night. Away!
