Henry 4, Part 1 Characters

Northumberland is Hotspur’s father and the brother of the Earl of Worcester. He is the same as the Northumberland of Richard II

More cautious than either his brother or (especially) his son, he tries to calm Hotspur down. Failing, he conveniently falls ill just before the battle between the rebels and the King, and thereby avoids execution. His further adventures are chronicled in Henry IV, Part Two.
