Much Ado About Nothing Characters

Friar Francis is in the tradition of Romeo and Juliet’s Friar Laurence; both are long-winded, well-meaning, somewhat interfering gentlemen who think it is a fine idea to make people believe a young girl is dead.

He is convinced of Hero’s innocence by her countenance at the wedding and shock at the accusations. He proposes that they should say that she died, thereby hopefully making Don Pedro and Claudio remorseful, rekindling Claudio’s love, and allowing for time to discover what’s actually going on. He is in charge of marrying everyone at the end.
