Queen Isabel

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Charles VI's consort in Henry V, she blesses the marriage of King Harry and Catherine 5.2.354–63. The historical Isabel (1370–1455) was considerably more lascivious and factious than Shakespeare's presentation of a peace-loving matron would suggest.
