1. Act I, Scene 1

0 KING JOHN’S palace.
2 King John.
3       Now, say, Chatillon, what would France with us?
4 Chatillon.
5       Thus, after greeting, speaks the King of France
6       In my behavior to the majesty,
7       The borrow'd majesty, of England here.
8 Queen Elinor.
9       A strange beginning: 'borrow'd majesty!'
10 King John.
11       Silence, good mother; hear the embassy.
12 Chatillon.
13       Philip of France, in right and true behalf
14       Of thy deceased brother Geffrey's son,
15       Arthur Plantagenet, lays most lawful claim
16       To this fair island and the territories,
17       To Ireland, Poictiers, Anjou, Touraine, Maine,
18       Desiring thee to lay aside the sword
19       Which sways usurpingly these several titles,
20       And put these same into young Arthur's hand,
21       Thy nephew and right royal sovereign.
22 King John.
23       What follows if we disallow of this?
24 Chatillon.
25       The proud control of fierce and bloody war,
26       To enforce these rights so forcibly withheld.
27 King John.
28       Here have we war for war and blood for blood,
29       Controlment for controlment: so answer France.
30 Chatillon.
31       Then take my king's defiance from my mouth,
32       The farthest limit of my embassy.
33 King John.
34       Bear mine to him, and so depart in peace:
35       Be thou as lightning in the eyes of France;
36       For ere thou canst report I will be there,
37       The thunder of my cannon shall be heard:
38       So hence! Be thou the trumpet of our wrath
39       And sullen presage of your own decay.
40       An honourable conduct let him have:
41       Pembroke, look to 't. Farewell, Chatillon.
43 Queen Elinor.
44       What now, my son! have I not ever said
45       How that ambitious Constance would not cease
46       Till she had kindled France and all the world,
47       Upon the right and party of her son?
48       This might have been prevented and made whole
49       With very easy arguments of love,
50       Which now the manage of two kingdoms must
51       With fearful bloody issue arbitrate.
52 King John.
53       Our strong possession and our right for us.
54 Queen Elinor.
55       Your strong possession much more than your right,
56       Or else it must go wrong with you and me:
57       So much my conscience whispers in your ear,
58       Which none but heaven and you and I shall hear.
59 [Enter a Sheriff]
60 Essex.
61       My liege, here is the strangest controversy
62       Come from country to be judged by you,
63       That e'er I heard: shall I produce the men?
64 King John.
65       Let them approach.
66       Our abbeys and our priories shall pay
67       This expedition's charge.
68       [Enter ROBERT and the BASTARD]
69       What men are you?
70 Philip the Bastard.
71       Your faithful subject I, a gentleman
72       Born in Northamptonshire and eldest son,
73       As I suppose, to Robert Faulconbridge,
74       A soldier, by the honour-giving hand
75       Of Coeur-de-lion knighted in the field.
76 King John.
77       What art thou?
78 Faulconbridge.
79       The son and heir to that same Faulconbridge.
80 King John.
81       Is that the elder, and art thou the heir?
82       You came not of one mother then, it seems.
83 Philip the Bastard.
84       Most certain of one mother, mighty king;
85       That is well known; and, as I think, one father:
86       But for the certain knowledge of that truth
87       I put you o'er to heaven and to my mother:
88       Of that I doubt, as all men's children may.
89 Queen Elinor.
90       Out on thee, rude man! thou dost shame thy mother
91       And wound her honour with this diffidence.
92 Philip the Bastard.
93       I, madam? no, I have no reason for it;
94       That is my brother's plea and none of mine;
95       The which if he can prove, a' pops me out
96       At least from fair five hundred pound a year:
97       Heaven guard my mother's honour and my land!
98 King John.
99       A good blunt fellow. Why, being younger born,
100       Doth he lay claim to thine inheritance?
101 Philip the Bastard.
102       I know not why, except to get the land.
103       But once he slander'd me with bastardy:
104       But whether I be as true begot or no,
105       That still I lay upon my mother's head,
106       But that I am as well begot, my liege,—
107       Fair fall the bones that took the pains for me!—
108       Compare our faces and be judge yourself.
109       If old sir Robert did beget us both
110       And were our father and this son like him,
111       O old sir Robert, father, on my knee
112       I give heaven thanks I was not like to thee!
113 King John.
114       Why, what a madcap hath heaven lent us here!
115 Queen Elinor.
116       He hath a trick of Coeur-de-lion's face;
117       The accent of his tongue affecteth him.
118       Do you not read some tokens of my son
119       In the large composition of this man?
120 King John.
121       Mine eye hath well examined his parts
122       And finds them perfect Richard. Sirrah, speak,
123       What doth move you to claim your brother's land?
124 Philip the Bastard.
125       Because he hath a half-face, like my father.
126       With half that face would he have all my land:
127       A half-faced groat five hundred pound a year!
128 Faulconbridge.
129       My gracious liege, when that my father lived,
130       Your brother did employ my father much,—
131 Philip the Bastard.
132       Well, sir, by this you cannot get my land:
133       Your tale must be how he employ'd my mother.
134 Faulconbridge.
135       And once dispatch'd him in an embassy
136       To Germany, there with the emperor
137       To treat of high affairs touching that time.
138       The advantage of his absence took the king
139       And in the mean time sojourn'd at my father's;
140       Where how he did prevail I shame to speak,
141       But truth is truth: large lengths of seas and shores
142       Between my father and my mother lay,
143       As I have heard my father speak himself,
144       When this same lusty gentleman was got.
145       Upon his death-bed he by will bequeath'd
146       His lands to me, and took it on his death
147       That this my mother's son was none of his;
148       And if he were, he came into the world
149       Full fourteen weeks before the course of time.
150       Then, good my liege, let me have what is mine,
151       My father's land, as was my father's will.
152 King John.
153       Sirrah, your brother is legitimate;
154       Your father's wife did after wedlock bear him,
155       And if she did play false, the fault was hers;
156       Which fault lies on the hazards of all husbands
157       That marry wives. Tell me, how if my brother,
158       Who, as you say, took pains to get this son,
159       Had of your father claim'd this son for his?
160       In sooth, good friend, your father might have kept
161       This calf bred from his cow from all the world;
162       In sooth he might; then, if he were my brother's,
163       My brother might not claim him; nor your father,
164       Being none of his, refuse him: this concludes;
165       My mother's son did get your father's heir;
166       Your father's heir must have your father's land.
167 Faulconbridge.
168       Shall then my father's will be of no force
169       To dispossess that child which is not his?
170 Philip the Bastard.
171       Of no more force to dispossess me, sir,
172       Than was his will to get me, as I think.
173 Queen Elinor.
174       Whether hadst thou rather be a Faulconbridge
175       And like thy brother, to enjoy thy land,
176       Or the reputed son of Coeur-de-lion,
177       Lord of thy presence and no land beside?
178 Philip the Bastard.
179       Madam, an if my brother had my shape,
180       And I had his, sir Robert's his, like him;
181       And if my legs were two such riding-rods,
182       My arms such eel-skins stuff'd, my face so thin
183       That in mine ear I durst not stick a rose
184       Lest men should say 'Look, where three-farthings goes!'
185       And, to his shape, were heir to all this land,
186       Would I might never stir from off this place,
187       I would give it every foot to have this face;
188       I would not be sir Nob in any case.
189 Queen Elinor.
190       I like thee well: wilt thou forsake thy fortune,
191       Bequeath thy land to him and follow me?
192       I am a soldier and now bound to France.
193 Philip the Bastard.
194       Brother, take you my land, I'll take my chance.
195       Your face hath got five hundred pound a year,
196       Yet sell your face for five pence and 'tis dear.
197       Madam, I'll follow you unto the death.
198 Queen Elinor.
199       Nay, I would have you go before me thither.
200 Philip the Bastard.
201       Our country manners give our betters way.
202 King John.
203       What is thy name?
204 Philip the Bastard.
205       Philip, my liege, so is my name begun,
206       Philip, good old sir Robert's wife's eldest son.
207 King John.
208       From henceforth bear his name whose form thou bear'st:
209       Kneel thou down Philip, but rise more great,
210       Arise sir Richard and Plantagenet.
211 Philip the Bastard.
212       Brother by the mother's side, give me your hand:
213       My father gave me honour, yours gave land.
214       Now blessed by the hour, by night or day,
215       When I was got, sir Robert was away!
216 Queen Elinor.
217       The very spirit of Plantagenet!
218       I am thy grandam, Richard; call me so.
219 Philip the Bastard.
220       Madam, by chance but not by truth; what though?
221       Something about, a little from the right,
222       In at the window, or else o'er the hatch:
223       Who dares not stir by day must walk by night,
224       And have is have, however men do catch:
225       Near or far off, well won is still well shot,
226       And I am I, howe'er I was begot.
227 King John.
228       Go, Faulconbridge: now hast thou thy desire;
229       A landless knight makes thee a landed squire.
230       Come, madam, and come, Richard, we must speed
231       For France, for France, for it is more than need.
232 Philip the Bastard.
233       Brother, adieu: good fortune come to thee!
234       For thou wast got i' the way of honesty.
235       [Exeunt all but BASTARD]
236       A foot of honour better than I was;
237       But many a many foot of land the worse.
238       Well, now can I make any Joan a lady.
239       'Good den, sir Richard!'—'God-a-mercy, fellow!'—
240       And if his name be George, I'll call him Peter;
241       For new-made honour doth forget men's names;
242       'Tis too respective and too sociable
243       For your conversion. Now your traveller,
244       He and his toothpick at my worship's mess,
245       And when my knightly stomach is sufficed,
246       Why then I suck my teeth and catechise
247       My picked man of countries: 'My dear sir,'
248       Thus, leaning on mine elbow, I begin,
249       'I shall beseech you'—that is question now;
250       And then comes answer like an Absey book:
251       'O sir,' says answer, 'at your best command;
252       At your employment; at your service, sir;'
253       'No, sir,' says question, 'I, sweet sir, at yours:'
254       And so, ere answer knows what question would,
255       Saving in dialogue of compliment,
256       And talking of the Alps and Apennines,
257       The Pyrenean and the river Po,
258       It draws toward supper in conclusion so.
259       But this is worshipful society
260       And fits the mounting spirit like myself,
261       For he is but a bastard to the time
262       That doth not smack of observation;
263       And so am I, whether I smack or no;
264       And not alone in habit and device,
265       Exterior form, outward accoutrement,
266       But from the inward motion to deliver
267       Sweet, sweet, sweet poison for the age's tooth:
268       Which, though I will not practise to deceive,
269       Yet, to avoid deceit, I mean to learn;
270       For it shall strew the footsteps of my rising.
271       But who comes in such haste in riding-robes?
272       What woman-post is this? hath she no husband
273       That will take pains to blow a horn before her?
275       O me! it is my mother. How now, good lady!
276       What brings you here to court so hastily?
277 Lady Faulconbridge.
278       Where is that slave, thy brother? where is he,
279       That holds in chase mine honour up and down?
280 Philip the Bastard.
281       My brother Robert? old sir Robert's son?
282       Colbrand the giant, that same mighty man?
283       Is it sir Robert's son that you seek so?
284 Lady Faulconbridge.
285       Sir Robert's son! Ay, thou unreverend boy,
286       Sir Robert's son: why scorn'st thou at sir Robert?
287       He is sir Robert's son, and so art thou.
288 Philip the Bastard.
289       James Gurney, wilt thou give us leave awhile?
290 James Gurney.
291       Good leave, good Philip.
292 Philip the Bastard.
293       Philip! sparrow: James,
294       There's toys abroad: anon I'll tell thee more.
295       [Exit GURNEY]
296       Madam, I was not old sir Robert's son:
297       Sir Robert might have eat his part in me
298       Upon Good-Friday and ne'er broke his fast:
299       Sir Robert could do well: marry, to confess,
300       Could he get me? Sir Robert could not do it:
301       We know his handiwork: therefore, good mother,
302       To whom am I beholding for these limbs?
303       Sir Robert never holp to make this leg.
304 Lady Faulconbridge.
305       Hast thou conspired with thy brother too,
306       That for thine own gain shouldst defend mine honour?
307       What means this scorn, thou most untoward knave?
308 Philip the Bastard.
309       Knight, knight, good mother, Basilisco-like.
310       What! I am dubb'd! I have it on my shoulder.
311       But, mother, I am not sir Robert's son;
312       I have disclaim'd sir Robert and my land;
313       Legitimation, name and all is gone:
314       Then, good my mother, let me know my father;
315       Some proper man, I hope: who was it, mother?
316 Lady Faulconbridge.
317       Hast thou denied thyself a Faulconbridge?
318 Philip the Bastard.
319       As faithfully as I deny the devil.
320 Lady Faulconbridge.
321       King Richard Coeur-de-lion was thy father:
322       By long and vehement suit I was seduced
323       To make room for him in my husband's bed:
324       Heaven lay not my transgression to my charge!
325       Thou art the issue of my dear offence,
326       Which was so strongly urged past my defence.
327 Philip the Bastard.
328       Now, by this light, were I to get again,
329       Madam, I would not wish a better father.
330       Some sins do bear their privilege on earth,
331       And so doth yours; your fault was not your folly:
332       Needs must you lay your heart at his dispose,
333       Subjected tribute to commanding love,
334       Against whose fury and unmatched force
335       The aweless lion could not wage the fight,
336       Nor keep his princely heart from Richard's hand.
337       He that perforce robs lions of their hearts
338       May easily win a woman's. Ay, my mother,
339       With all my heart I thank thee for my father!
340       Who lives and dares but say thou didst not well
341       When I was got, I'll send his soul to hell.
342       Come, lady, I will show thee to my kin;
343       And they shall say, when Richard me begot,
344       If thou hadst said him nay, it had been sin:
345       Who says it was, he lies; I say 'twas not.
