Henry VI, Part 1 Characters

Earl of Warwick, of the Yorkist party, is a young English lord, a friend of Richard Plantagenet’s. 

Asked to mediate in the quarrel between Richard and the Duke of Somerset, he takes Richard’s side; he also presents the petition to the King that restores Richard to his inheritance. He acts as a restraint on Richard’s more violent instincts, holding him back from saying anything unforgivable. His further adventures are chronicled in Henry VI, Part Two.
