King Richard II Characters

Abbot of Westminster is grieved at Richard’s deposition. Agreeing with the Bishop of Carlisle’s denunciation of its illegality, he forms a plot to assassinate the new King Henry. 

This fails when Aumerle, who is in on the conspiracy, accidentally lets his father see a letter on the subject, causing the whole plot to be revealed. The Abbot is executed for this.
