King Richard II Characters

John Bagot is one of Richard’s friends, deeply disliked by the nobility for being a commoner and having the King’s ear. He is perfectly aware that the common people are not overfond of Richard due to his heavy taxation. 

Rather than join Bushy and Green in hiding at the Earl of Wiltshire’s when Bullingbrook returns, he chooses to go to Ireland to warn the King. Captured by Bullingbrook, he accuses Aumerle of the Duke of Gloucester’s death, apparently saving himself by turning state’s evidence for the new King.
