Henry 4, Part 1 Characters

Richard Vernon comes to warn Hotspur of the King’s forces and of Glendower’s inability to join up with the other rebels in time. 

He is greatly impressed by Prince Harry, and attempts to get across to Hotspur that the Prince may be a genuine adversary, despite his wild reputation. He is far more cautious than either Hotspur or Douglas, but has little influence on them. He generally ends up giving in to what his superiors decide, even when it goes against his own better judgment. Captured in the battle, he is sent off to be executed by the King.
