    In the first scene of the play King Henry IV indirectly expresses that he is bothered by the thought of Prince Hal becoming king. He wishes that somehow there was a mix-up and that Hal is actually not his son (1.1.85-90). The thought of Hal causes the King sorrow because his son’s behavior is reckless (1.1.84-5). The next scene of the play gives the audience insight of Hal’s behavior. Hal, also known as the Prince of Wales, socializes with thieves and carousers, such as Falstaff.

The King doesn’t understand Hal’s actions and believes that Percy would be a more fit heir to the throne (3.2.93-9). King Henry the Fourth thinks lowly of the Prince of Wales. In fact, Henry goes so far as to say that he wouldn’t be surprised if he joined Percy to fight against him (3.2.124-8). However, Hal denies the possibility of that ever happening (3.2.129-31). As the play goes on the reader is able to quickly realize the onerous relationship between Prince Hal and Henry IV. The play primarily focuses on Hal which is why he is the protagonist. One of the antagonists of the play…
