Henry IV Part 2

Thomas, Duke of Clarence

Character Analysis

Thomas is another one of King Henry IV's sons and Hal's little brother. Like his brother, Humphrey, Thomas has a tiny role and hardly speaks. Both Humphrey and Thomas serve as audiences for their father's long winded speeches about what a rotten son Prince Hal is.
