Rules of being a ruler include the sacrifices and burdens you must withstand when head of a nation Shakespeares Henry IV is such a example that Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown Thus this would be a fitted title and motto for the play because of the many hardships which face the king I plan to express these troubles which face the king and discuss if they are troubles that are self inflicted or if perhaps inevitable hardships which face any ruler of a country For Henry his problems are not only ones that most rulers would face but also personal problems with his family and health These problems only add heavily to all the existing problems that continually drive the king to be uneasy Now this may sound sympathetic to Henry and I am not saying that he does not deserve such sympathy but as stated before some of Henrys problems I believe are brought on by himself So where does my sympathy lie well when discussing the factors that I feel are responsible for the troubled king I will express whether or not I feel compassion for the king The first problems faced by the king are those in which all in power seem to endure at one time or another These are the quandaries of rebellion within the country A problem which Henry did face in part one and is now facing again adding to his worries The country is in a revolutionary time and thus in a wild and anarchy state Henry has not only the commonwealth turning against him but also powerful adversaries such as Northumberland Lord Bardolph and the Archbishop These are all forces which threaten the king and drive more worries of how to keep a united nation Also with the Archbishop against the king it becomes a justified act to rebel and under God there is allowed rebellion just as under God a king feels
