All's Well That Ends Well Characters

An Old Widow runs a resting point for pilgrims on their road to Compostella. 

Convinced by Helena’s story that she is Bertram’s wife, though the gold helps her to this conviction, she agrees to help her with her bed-trick which will have the dual effect of allowing Helena to fulfill her husband’s requirements and saving Diana from Bertram’s importuning (and the endless nighttime serenading he engages in). She plays her part of outraged mother to the hilt, following the King of France until she finds him, and protecting her daughter. She knows very well how men go about getting into the beds of the girls they affection, and trains her daughter Diana exactly how to treat him to make the trick work.
