Character Analysis

Margarelon is King Priam's "bastard" son. He shows up only once in the play, when he confronts Thersites on the battlefield (5.7.13). His sudden and brief appearance in the play seems pretty random. It seems like Shakespeare wrote him into the play just so Thersites could have a good reason to deliver his big speech about bastards.
