Henry VI, Part 2 Characters

Lord Clifford, of the Lancastrian party, is an old nobleman highly loyal to the King. He is sent with Buckingham to convince Cade’s followers to abandon their rebellion, and twice manages to win them over by his speeches. 

When York insists that he is the rightful King, all Clifford can think is that York has gone mad, and he has no qualms about recommending his immediate execution. He is Henry’s main defender against the Yorkist forces. He is an excellent fighter, but York has the better of him. His final thought is that how one dies is more important than the fact of dying.
