Edward 3 Characters

The Countess of Salisbury, Warwick’s daughter and Salisbury’s wife, is an English noblewoman who has the misfortune of being captured by the Scottish King and of being rather good-looking, attracting the attentions of not only Earl Douglas and King David but also of King Edward. 

Though a well-brought-up, well-behaved, and respectable lady, she has a sarcastic edge to her tongue when need be, and does not refrain from mocking the Scots when they are on the verge of running away. A loyal subject, she nevertheless absolutely refuses to entertain the idea of cheating on her husband with the King, out-arguing him on the subject and in the end out-maneuvering him completely into giving up his importuning. She is both brave and extremely clever.
