FIRST PART

OF

KING HENRY VI.



ACT I.



SCENE I. — Westminster- Abbey.

Dead March. Corpse of King Henry the Fifth
discovered^ lying in state ; attended on by the
Dukes of Bedford, Gloster, and Exeter ; the
Earl o/'Warwick, the Bishop of Winchester,
Heralds, ^c.

Bedford.

Hung be the heavens with black, yield day to

night !
Comets, importing change of times and states,
Brandish your crystal tresses in the sky ;
And with them scourge the bad revolting stars.
That have consented unto Henry's death !
Henry the fifth, too famous to live long !
England ne'er lost a king of so much worth,

Glo. England ne'er had a king until his time.
Virtue he had, deserving to command :
His brandish'd sword did blind men with his beams;
His arms spread wider than a dragort's wings ;
His sparkling eyes replete with wrathful fire,

B ^



4 FIRST PART OF Act I.

More dazzled and drove back his enemies,
Than mid-day sun, fierce bent against their faces.
What should I say ? his deeds exceed all speech,
He ne'er lift up his hand, but conquered.

Ea:e, We mourn in black ; Why mourn we not
in blood ?
Henry is dead, and never shall revive :
Upon a wooden coffin we attend ;
And death's dishonourable victory
We with our stately presence glorify.
Like captives bound to a triumphant car.
What? shall we curse the planets of mishap.
That plotted thus our glory's overthrow ?
Or shall we think the subtle-witted French
Conjurers and sorcerers, that, afraid of him.
By magick verses ^ have contriv'd his end ?

Win, He was a king bless'd of the King of kings.
The battles of the Lord of hosts he fought :
The church's prayers made him so prosperous.

Glo. None do you like but an effeminate prince,
Whom, like a school-boy, you may over-awe.

Win, Gloster, whate'er we like, thou art pro-
tector ;
And lookest to command the prince, and realm.
Thy wife is proud ; she holdeth thee in awe.
More than religion or than churchmen may.

Glo, Name not rehgion, for thou lov'st the flesh.
And ne'er throughout the year to church thou go'st.
Except it be to pray against thy foes.

Bed, Gease, cease these jars, and rest your minds
in peace !
Let's to the altar : — Heralds, wait on us : —
Instead of gold, we'll offer up our arms;
Since arms avail not, now that Henry's dead. —
Posterity, await for wretched years,

1 There was a notion long prevalent, that life might be takea •
away by metrical charms.



Scene I. KING HENRY VI. 5

When at their mothers' moist eyes babes shall suck ;
Our isle be made a nourish ^ of salt tears,
And none but women left to wail the dead. —
Henry the fifth ! thy ghost I invocate ;
Prosper this realm, keep it from civil broils !
Combat with adverse planets in the heavens !
A far more glorious star thy soul will make.
Than Julius Caesar, or bright

Enter a Messenger.

Mess, My honourable lords, health to you all !
Sad tidings bring I to you out of France,
Of loss, of slaughter, and discomfiture :
Guienne, Champaigne, Rheims, Orleans,
Paris, Guysors, Poictiers, are all quite lost.

Bed. What say'st thou, man, before dead Henry's
corse ?
Speak softly ; or the loss of those great towns
Will make him burst his lead, and rise from death.

Glo. Is Paris lost ? is Roiien yielded up ?
If Henry were recall'd to life again.
These news would cause him once more yield the
ghost.

Ea:e, How were they lost ? what treachery was
us'd?

Mess, No treachery; but want of men and money.
Among the soldiers this is muttered, —
That here you maintain several factions y
And, whilst a field should be dispatch'd and fought,
Your are disputing of your generals.
One would have ling'ring wars with little cost ;
Another would fly swift, but wanteth wings ;
A third man thinks, without expence at all.
By guileful fair words peace may be obtain'd.
Awake, awake, English nobility !
Let not sloth dim your honours, new-begot :

^ Nurse was anciently so spelt.
B 3



6 FIRST PART OF Act I.

Cropp'd are the flower-de-luces in your arms ;
Of England's coat one half is cut away.

Ea:e, Were our tears wanting to this funeral,
These tidings would call forth her flowing tides.

Bed. Me they concern ; regent I am of France : —
Give me my steeled coat, I'll fight for France. —
Away with these disgraceful wailing robes !
Wounds I will lend the French, instead of eyes.
To weep their intermissive miseries. ^

Enter another Messenger.

2 Mess. Lords, view these letters, full of bad

mischance,
France is revolted from the English quite ;
Except some petty towns of no import :
The dauphin Charles is crowned king in Rheims;
The bastard of Orleans with him is join'd ;
Reignier, duke of Anjou, doth take his part ;
The duke of Alen9on flieth to his side.

Ea:e. The dauphin crowned king! all fly to him!
O, whither shall we fly from this reproach ?

Glo. We will not fly, but to our enemies'
throats : —
Bedford, if thou be slack, I'll fight it out

Bed. Gloster, why doubt'st thou of my forward-
ness?
An army have I muster'd in my thoughts.
Wherewith already France is over-run.

Enter a third Messenger.

3 Mess. My gracious lords, — to add to your la-

ments.
Wherewith you now bedew king Henry's hearse, —
I must inform you of a dismal fight.
Betwixt the stout lord Talbot and the French.

3 i, e Their miseries which have had only a short intermission.



Scene L KING HENRY VI. 7

Win. What ! wherein Talbot overcame ? is't so ?

3 Mess, O, no ; wherein lord Talbot was over-
thrown ;
The circumstance PU tell you more at large-.
The tenth of August last, this dreadful lord,
Retiring from the siege of Orleans,
Having fidl scarce six thousand in his troop,
By three and twenty thousand of the French
Was round encompassed and set upon ;
No leisure had he to enrank his men ;
He wanted pikes to set before his archers ;
Instead whereof) sharp stakes, pluck'd out of

hedges.
They pitched in the ground confusedly.
To keep the horsemen off from breaking in.
More than three hours the fight continued ;
Where valiant Talbot, above human thought,
Enacted wonders with his sword and lance.
Hundreds he sentto death, and none durststand him;
Here, there, and every where, enragM he slew :
The French exclaim'd, the devil was in arms ;
All the whole army stood agaz'd on him :
His soldiers, spying his undaunted spirit,
A Talbot ! a Talbot ! cried out amain.
And rush'd into the bowels of the battle.
Here had the conquest fully been seal'd up.
If sir John Fastolfe had not play'd the coward :
He being in the vaward (plac'd behind
With purpose to relieve and follow them,)
Cowardly fled, not having struck one stroke.
Hence grew the general wreck and massacre ;
Enclosed were they with their enemies :
A base Walloon, to win the dauphin's grace.
Thrust Talbot with a spear into tiie back ;
Whom all France, with their chief assembled

strength.
Durst not presume to look once in the face.

B 4



8 FIRST PART OF Act I.

Bed. Is Talbot slain ? then I will slay myself, '
For living idly here, in pomp and ease.
Whilst such a worthy leader, wanting aid,
Unto his dastard foe-men is betrajr'd.

3 Mess. O no, he lives ; but is took prisoner,
And lord Scales with him, and lord Hungerford ;
Most of the rest slaughter' d, or took, likewise.

Bed. His ransome there is none but I shall pay :
I'll hale the dauphin headlong from his throne,
His crown shall be the ransome of my friend ;
Four of their lords I'll change for one of ours. —
Farewell, my masters ; to my task will I ;
Bonfires in France forthwith 1 am to make.
To keep our great saint George's feast withal :
Ten thousand soldiers with me I will take.
Whose bloody deeds shall make all Europe quake.

3 Mess. So you had need ; for Orleans is be-
sieg'd ;
The English army is grown weak and faint:
The earl of Salisbury craveth supply,
And hardly keeps his men from mutiny,
Since they, so few, watch such a multitude.

Exe. Remember, lords, your oaths to Henry
sworn ;
Either to quell the dauphin utterly,
Or bring him in obedience to your yoke.

Bed. I do remember it ; and here take leave.
To go about my preparation. \_Ea:it.

Glo. I'll to the Tower, with all the haste 1 can.
To view the artillery and munition ;
And then I will proclaim young Henry king. \_Ea:it.

Ejre. To Eltham will I, where the young king is.
Being ordain'd his special governor ;
And for his safety there I'll best devise. \^E^it.

Win. Each hath his place and function to at-
tend :
I am left out ; for me nothing remains.



Scene II. KING HENRY VI. 9

But long I will not be Jack-out-of-office ;

The king from Eltham I intend to send,

And sit at chiefest stern of public weal. [_Ej:it,



SCENE II.
France. Before Orleans.

Enter Charles, with his Forces ; ALEN90N,
Reiginer, and others.

Char. Mars his true moving, even as in the hea-
vens.
So in the earth, to this day is not known :
Late did he shine upon the English side ;
Now we are victors, upon us he smiles.
What towns of any moment, but we have ?
At pleasure here we lie, near Orleans ;
Thewhiles, the famish'd English, like pale ghosts,
Faintly besiege us one hour in a month.

Alen. They want their porridge, and their fat
bull-beeves :
Either they must be dieted like mules.
And have their provender tyed to their mouths,
Or piteous they will look, like drowned mice.

Reig. Let's raise the siege : Why live we idly
here ?
Talbot is taken, whom we wont to fear :
Remaineth none but mad-brain'd Salisbury ; -
And he may well in fretting spend his gall,
Nor men, nor money, hath he to make war.

Char. Sound, sound alarum ; we will rush on
them.
Now for the honour of the forlorn French : —
Him I forgive my death, that killeth me,
When he sees me go back one foot, or fly. [^Ea:eunt*



10 FIRST PART OF Act I.



Alarums ; Excursions ; afterwards a Retreat.

Re-enter Charles, ALEisr90N, Reignier, and
others.

Char, Who ever saw the like? what men have I? —
Dogs! cowards! dastards! — I would ne'er have fled,
But that they lefb me 'midst my enemies.

Reig, Salisbury is a desperate homicide ;
He fighteth as one weary of his life.
The other lords, like lions wanting food,
Do rush upon us as their hungry prey. ^

Alen. Froissard, a countryman of ours, records,
England all Olivers and Rowlands bred,
During the time Edward the third did reign.
More truly now may this be verified ;
For none but Samsons, and Goliasses,
It sendeth forth to skirmish. One to ten !
Lean raw-bon'd rascals! who would e'er suppose
They had such courage and audacity ?

Char, Let's leave this town ; for they are hair-
brain'd slaves.
And hunger will enforce them to be more eager :
Of old I know them ; rather with their teeth
The walls they'll tear down, than forsake the siege.

Reig, I think by some odd gimmals ^ or device.
Their arms are set, like clocks, still to strike on ;
Else ne'er could they hold out so, as they do.
By my consent, we'll e'en let them alone.

Alen. Be it so.

Enter th£ Bastard o/' Orleans.

Bast. Where's the prince dauphin, I have news
for him.

4 i, e. The prey for which they are hungry.
^ A gimmal is a piece of jointed work, where one piece moves
within another ; here it is taken at large for an engine.



Scene II. KING HENRY VI. il

Char. Bastard^ of Orleans, thrice welcome to us.

Bast. Methinks, your looks are sad, your cheer ^
appall' d ;
Hath the late overthrow wrought this offence ?
Be not dismay'd, for succour is at hand :
A holy maid hither with me I bring,
Which, by a vision sent to her from heaven.
Ordained is to raise this tedious siege.
And drive the English forth the bounds of France.
The spirit of deep prophecy she hath.
Exceeding the nine sibyls of old Rome ;
What's past, and what's to come, she can descry.
Speak, shall I call her in ? Believe my words,
For they are certain and unfallible.

Char. Go, call her in : \_Exit Bastard.] But,
first, to try her skill,
Reignier, stand thou as dauphin in my place :
Question her proudly, let thy looks be stern : —
By this means shall we sound what skill she, hath.

[^Retires.

Enter La Pucelle, Bastard of Orleans, and
others.

Reig. Fair maid, is't thou wilt do these wond'rous
feats ?

Puc. Reignier, is't thou that thinkest to beguile
me ? —
Where is the dauphin ? — come, come from behind j
1 know thee well, though never seen before.
Be not amaz'd, there's nothing hid from me :
In private will I talk with thee apart : —
Stand back, you lords, and give us leave a while.

Reig. She takes upon her bravely at first dash.

^ This was not in former times a term of reproach.
7 Countenance.



12 FIRST PART OF Act I.

Puc. Dauphin, I am by birth a shepherd's
daughter,
My wit untrain'd in any kind of art.
Heaven, and our lady gracious, hath it pleas'd
To shine on my contemptible estate :
Lo, whilst I waited on my tender lambs.
And to sun's parching heat display'd my cheeks.
Our lady deigned to appear to me ;
And, in a vision full of majesty,
Will'd me to leave my base vocation,
And free my country from calamity :
Her aid she promis'd and assur'd success :
In complete glory she reveal'd herself;
And, whereas I was black and swart before,
With those clear rays which she infus'd on me.
That beauty am I bless'd with, which you see.
Ask me what question thou canst possible.
And I will answer unpremeditated :
My courage try by combat, if thou dar'st.
And thou shalt find that I exceed my sex.
Resolve on this ^ : Thou shalt be fortunate.
If thou receive me for thy warlike mate.

Char, Thou hast astonish' d me with thy high
terms ;
Only this proof I'll of thy valour make, —
In single combat thou shalt buckle with me :
And, if thou vanquishest, thy words are true ;
Otherwise, I renounce all confidence.

Puc. I am prepar'd : here is my keen-edg'd
sword,
Deck'd with five flower-de-luces on each side ;
The which at Touraine, in Saint Katharine's church-
yard.
Out of a deal of old iron t chose forth.

Char. Then come on, damsel, I fear no woman.

^' Be firmly persuaded of it.



Scene II. KING HENRY VI. 13

Puc. And, while I live, I'll ne'er fly from a man.

ITheyJight.

Char. Stay, stay thy hands ; thou art an Amazon,
And fightest with the sword of Deborah.

Puc, Christ's mother helps me, else I were too
weak.

Char, Whoe'er helps thee, 'tis thou that must
help me :
My heart and hands thou hast at once subdu'd.
Excellent Pucelle, if thy name be so.
Let me thy servant, and not sovereign, be ;
'Tis the French dauphin sueth to thee thus.

Puc, I must not yield to any thoughts of love.
For my profession's sacred from above :
When I have chased all thy foes from hence,
Then will I think upon a recompence.

Char, Meantime, look gracious on thy prostrate
thrall.

Reig, My lord, methinks, is very long in talk.
. Alen, He may mean more than we poor men do
know.

Reig, My lord, where are you ? what devise you
on ?
Shall we give over Orleans, or no ?

Puc, Why, no, I say, distrustful recreants !
Fight till the last gasp ; I will be your guard.

Char, What she says, I'll confirm ; we'll fight it
out.

Puc, Assign'd am I to be the English scourge.
This night the siege assuredly I'll raise :
Expect saint Martin's summer^, halcyon days.
Since I have entered into these wars.
Glory is like a circle in the water,
Which never ceaseth to enlarge itselfj
Till, by broad spreading, it disperse to nought.

^ Expect prosperity after misfortune.



14 FIRST PART OF Act I.

With Henry's death, the English circle ends ;
Dispersed are the glories it included.
Now am I like that proud insulting ship,
Which Caesar and his fortune bare at once.

Char, Was Mahomet inspired with a dove ?
Thou with an eagle art inspired then.
Helen, the mother of great Constantine,
Nor yet saint Philip's daughters ^ were like thee.
Bright star of Venus, fall'n down on the earth,
How may I reverently worship thee ?

Alen, Leave off delays, and let us raise the siege.

Reig, Woman, do what thou canst to save our
honours ;
Drive them from Orleans, and be immortaliz'd.

Char, Presently we'll try : — Come, let's away
about it :
No prophet will I trust if she prove false. [_Exeunt,



SCENE III.

London. Hill before the Tower.

Enter^ at the Gates, the Duke o/'Gloster, with his
Serving-men, in blue Coats.

Glo, I am come to survey the Tower this day ;
Since Henry's death, I fear, there is conveyance.^
Where be these warders, that they wait not here ?
Open the gates ; Gloster it is that calls.

[Servants knock,
1 Ward, [Within,~\ Who is there that knocks so
imperiously ?

1 Serv, It is the noble duke of Gloster.

2 Ward, [Within,~] Whoe'er he be, you may not

be let in.

' Meaning the four daughters of Philip mentioned in Acts
xxi. 9. - Theft.



Scene III. KING HENRY VI. 15

SertK Answer you so the lord protector, vil-
lains ?
1 Ward. [^Within.'] The Lord protect him ! so we
answer him :
We do no otherwise than we are will'd.

Glo. Who willed you ? or whose will stands, but
mine?
There's none protector of the realm but I. —
Break up the gates, I'll be your warrantize :
Shall I be flouted thus by dunghill grooms ?

Servants mesh at the Tower Gates, EnteVy to the
Gates y WooDviL-LE, the Lieutenant.

Wood. [Within.'] What noise is this ? what trai-
tors have we here ?
Glo. Lieutenant, is it you, whose voice I hear?
Open the gates ; here's Gloster, that would enter.
Wood. [Within.'] Have patience, noble duke ; I
may not open ;
The cardinal of Winchester forbids :
From him I have express commandment.
That thou, nor none of thine, shall be let in.
Glo. Faint-hearted Woodville, prizest him *fore
me?
Arrogant Winchester ? that haughty prelate.
Whom Henry, our late sovereign, ne'er could

brook ?
Thou art no friend to Heaven, or to the king :
Open the gates, or I'll shut thee out shortly.

1 Serv. Open the gates unto the lord protector ;
Or we'll burst them open, if that you come not
quickly.

Enter Winchester, attended by a Train of Ser-
vants in tawny Coats.

Win. How now, ambitious Humphrey? what
means this ?



16 FIRST PART OF Act I.

Glo. Piel'd priest ^ dost thou command me to

be shut out?
Win, I do, thou most usurping proditor/
And not protector of the king or realm.

Glo. Stand back : thou manifest conspirator ;
Thou that contriv'dst to murder our dead lord :
Pll canvass ^ thee in thy broad cardinal's hat,
If thou proceed in this thy insolence.

Win, Nay, stand thou back, I will not budge a

foot.
Glo. 1 will not slay thee, but I'll drive thee back ;
Thy scarlet robes, as a child's bearing- cloth
I'll use, to carry thee out of this place.

Win, Do what thou dar'st j I beard thee to thy

face.
Glo, What? am I dar'd, and bearded to my
face ? —
Draw, men, for all this privileged place ;
Blue-coats to tawny coats. Priest, beware your
beard ;

[Gloster and his men attack the Bishop.
I mean to tug it, and to cuff you soundly :
Under my feet I stamp thy cardinal's hat ;
In spite of pope or dignities of church.

Win. Gloster, thou'lt answer this before the pope.
Glo. Now beat them hence, Why do you let them
stay? —
Thee I'll chase hence, thou wolf in sheep's array. —
Out, tawny coats ! - out, scarlet ^ hypocrite !

Here a great Tumult, In the midst ofity enter the
Mayor o/' London, and Officers.

May, Fye, lords ! that you, being supreme ma-
gistrates.
Thus contumeliously should break the peace !

8 Alluding to his shaven crown. ^ Traitor,

s Sift. ^ An allusion to the Bishop's habit.



Scene III. KING HENRY VI. 17

Glo. Peace, mayor ; thou know*st little of my
wrongs :
Here's Beaufort, that regards nor God nor king,
Hath here distrain'd the Tower to his use.

Win. Here's Gloster too, a foe to citizens ;
One that still motions war, and never peace,
O'ercharging your free purses with large fines ;
That seeks to overthrow religion.
Because he is protector of the realm ;
And would have armour here out of the Tower,
To crown himself king, and suppress the prince.

Glo. I will not answer thee with words, but
blows. \_Here they skirmish again.

May. Nought rests for me, in this tumultuous
strife,
But to make open proclamation : —
Come, officer ; as loud as e'er thoii canst.

Off. All manner of men, assembled here in arms this
day, against God^ s peace and the king^s, we charge
and command you, in his highness' name, to repair
to your several dwelling-places ; a7id not to wear^
handle, or use, any sword, weapon, or dagger,
henceforward, upon pain of death.

Glo. Cardinal, I'll be no breaker of the law :
But we shall meet, and break our minds at
large.
Win. Gloster we'll meet ; to thy dear cost, be
sure :
Thy heart-blood I will have, for this day's work.

May. I'll call for clubs \ if you will not away : —
This cardinal is more haughty than the devil.
Glo. Mayor, farewell : thou dost but what thou
mayst.

' That is for peace-officers armed with clubs or staves.
VOL. V. C



18^ FIRST PART OF Act I.

Win, Abominable Gloster ! guard thy head ;
For I intend to have it ere long. \_Ea:eunt.

May, See' the coast clear'd, and then we will
depart. \Eoceunt,



SCENE IV.
France. Before Orleans.

Enter on the Walls, the Master-Gunner and his Son.

M, Gun. Sirrah, thou know'st how Orleans is
besieg'd ;
And how the English have the suburbs won.

Son, Father, I know ; and oft have shot at them,
Howe'er, unfortunate, I miss'd my aim.

M, Gun, But now thou shalt not. Be thou ruPd
by me :
Chief master-gunner am I of this town ;
Something I must do, to procure me grace :
The prince's espials^ have informed me,
How the English, in the suburbs close intrenched.
Wont, through a secret grate of iron bars
In yonder tower, to overpeer the city ;
And thence discover, how, with most advantage,
They may vex us, with shot, or with assault.
To intercept this inconvenience,
A piece of ordnance 'gainst it I have plac'd ;
And fully even these three days have I watch'd.
If I could see them. Now, boy, do thou watch,
For I can stay no longer.
If thou spy'st any, run and bring me word ;
And thou shalt find me at the governor's. \_Exit,

Son, Father, I warrant you ; take you no care ;
I'll never trouble you, if I may spy them.

^ Spies.



Scene IV. KING HENRY VI. 19

Enter^ in an upper Chamber of a Tower, the Lords
Salisbury and Talbot, Sir William Glans-
DALE, Sir Thomas Gargiiave, and others,

Sal. Talbot, my life, my joy, again return'd !
