Oberon is King of Fairies. Proud, angry, and vengeful, he quarrels with Titania for the sake of a changeling boy, and on being refused decides to humiliate her into obedience.
He is interested enough in mortals to decide to make happy a lovelorn girl passing by at the time that he hits on this idea for forging a reconciliation with his Queen. He is fond of Puck, but not blind to his anarchic tendencies, and suspects him of causing the lovers’ confusion willfully. He drugs Titania in her sleep to make her fall in love with some monstrous creature, and uses her infatuation to take the changeling boy from her. Having done so, he removes his spell and reconciles himself with her. They then go to bless Theseus’s house on his wedding night, promising good fortune to all the wedded couples.
