The play was first staged in , but was not a n by: William Kenrick.

    Henry IV, Part 1, chronicle play in five acts by William Shakespeare, written about –97 and published from a reliable authorial draft in a quarto edition. Henry IV, Part 1 is the second in a sequence of four history plays (the others being Richard II, Henry IV, Part 2, and Henry V) known collectively as the “second tetralogy,” treating major events of English history in the late.   Of course, Falstaff is not as much a black magician as Richard III, who in a course of one speech, convinced Lady Ann, whose husband he killed, to be romantically interested in him.
