Henry VI, Part 1 Characters

Reignier, Duke of Anjou is an impoverished French nobleman who holds the purely cosmetic title of King of Naples. 

One of Charles’s main generals, he is as willing as his master to let Joan de Pucelle save their skins. When his daughter Margaret is captured by Suffolk, he is at first worried, but when the Englishman asks to have her married to King Henry, Reignier is quick to agree so long as the English stop attacking him. He is vainglorious and not particularly intelligent, though he does counsel Charles to take the peace treaty that makes him King and ends the war.
