The King of France has come to England to woo Lear’s remaining unwed daughter, Cordelia. 

When Lear suddenly disowns the latter, he decides to marry her all the same, even if she brings no dowry. Later, moved by her pleas to help her father, he invades England to restore the old man to his throne. However, he realizes that he left some problems unattended to in France, and goes back over the Channel to deal with them, leaving Cordelia to lead his armies against the British forces.
