Henry IV Part 2

Henry IV Part 2

Bardolph

Character Analysis

Bardolph is one of Falstaff's degenerate Eastcheap pals. He takes part in the Gads Hill robbery in Part 1 of Henry IV, likes to drink (a lot), and is famous for his ruddy complexion and red nose. Bardolph shouldn't be confused with "Lord Bardolph," Northumberland's rebel associate.
