The Merry Wives of Windsor Characters

Master George Page is a wealthy gentleman of Windsor, married to Mistress Margaret and father of Anne and William. 

He is well-aware of his place in society and therefore rejects Master Fenton as a husband for his daughter, thinking him too high-born; he prefers a good, solid marriage with a rich man of Windsor, Master Slender. He finds Master Ford’s jealousy ludicrously over-the-top, and tries to calm him down, without much success. He loves and trusts his wife and is willing to follow her advice in most things, allowing her to be in charge of the family finances. Nevertheless, he tries to act behind her back to get Anne to marry Master Slender, never dreaming that Anne might deceive him and run off with her own choice of husband instead. He is a good-natured fellow who enjoys a good laugh.
