    More philosopher than king, King Richard is an intelligent but ineffectual monarch. Convinced of his divine right to rule, he leads recklessly which gives the cunning Henry Bolingbroke an opening to challenge his claim to the throne.

     

    Filled with magnificent verse and Shakespeare’s singular wisdom and insight, King Richard II is a deeply moving and illuminating portrait of how the forces of history collide to set in motion a dynastic civil war that lasts 100 years.

     

    See this first chapter in Shakespeare’s epic cycle of the wars that shaped a nation’s political landscape. In coming seasons, look forward to the next two chapters: Henry IV, Parts I and II.
