King John Characters

The Duke of Austria, also called Lymoges, was responsible for the death of the previous King of England, Richard Coeur-de-lion (the Lionhearted). 

He is a foolish braggart who goes around wearing a lion-skin in memory of that fact, betrays his oaths easily, and threatens while rarely acting on his threats. Taunted by the Bastard, he finds himself beheaded by the latter in combat.
