1

II,1,816

O, God save ye!
Even to the hall, to hear what shall become
Of the great Duke of Buckingham.

2

II,1,822

Were you there?

3

II,1,824

Pray, speak what has happen'd.

4

II,1,826

Is he found guilty?

5

II,1,828

I am sorry for't.

6

II,1,830

But, pray, how pass'd it?

7

II,1,843

That was he
That fed him with his prophecies?

8

II,1,852

After all this, how did he bear himself?

9

II,1,859

I do not think he fears death.

10

II,1,863

Certainly
The cardinal is the end of this.

11

II,1,870

That trick of state
Was a deep envious one.

12

II,1,877

All the commons
Hate him perniciously, and, o' my conscience,
Wish him ten fathom deep: this duke as much
They love and dote on; call him bounteous Buckingham,
The mirror of all courtesy;—

13

II,1,888

Let's stand close, and behold him.

14

II,1,977

If the duke be guiltless,
'Tis full of woe: yet I can give you inkling
Of an ensuing evil, if it fall,
Greater than this.

15

II,1,983

This secret is so weighty, 'twill require
A strong faith to conceal it.

16

II,1,987

I am confident,
You shall, sir: did you not of late days hear
A buzzing of a separation
Between the king and Katharine?

17

II,1,996

But that slander, sir,
Is found a truth now: for it grows again
Fresher than e'er it was; and held for certain
The king will venture at it. Either the cardinal,
Or some about him near, have, out of malice
To the good queen, possess'd him with a scruple
That will undo her: to confirm this too,
Cardinal Campeius is arrived, and lately;
As all think, for this business.

18

II,1,1009

I think you have hit the mark: but is't not cruel
That she should feel the smart of this? The cardinal
Will have his will, and she must fall.

19

IV,1,2379

So are you.

20

IV,1,2382

'Tis all my business. At our last encounter,
The Duke of Buckingham came from his trial.

21

IV,1,2386

'Tis well: the citizens,
I am sure, have shown at full their royal minds—
As, let 'em have their rights, they are ever forward—
In celebration of this day with shows,
Pageants and sights of honour.

22

IV,1,2393

May I be bold to ask at what that contains,
That paper in your hand?

23

IV,1,2401

I thank you, sir: had I not known those customs,
I should have been beholding to your paper.
But, I beseech you, what's become of Katharine,
The princess dowager? how goes her business?

24

IV,1,2417

Alas, good lady!
[Trumpets]
The trumpets sound: stand close, the queen is coming.
[Hautboys]
[THE ORDER OF THE CORONATION]
1. A lively flourish of Trumpets.
2. Then, two Judges.
3. Lord Chancellor, with the purse and mace
before him.
4. Choristers, singing.
[Music]
5. Mayor of London, bearing the mace. Then
Garter, in his coat of arms, and on his
head a gilt copper crown.
6. Marquess Dorset, bearing a sceptre of gold,
on his head a demi-coronal of gold. With
him, SURREY, bearing the rod of silver with
the dove, crowned with an earl's coronet.
Collars of SS.
7. SUFFOLK, in his robe of estate, his coronet
on his head, bearing a long white wand, as
high-steward. With him, NORFOLK, with the
rod of marshalship, a coronet on his head.
Collars of SS.
8. A canopy borne by four of the Cinque-ports;
under it, QUEEN ANNE in her robe; in her hair
richly adorned with pearl, crowned. On each
side her, the Bishops of London and
Winchester.
9. The old Duchess of Norfolk, in a coronal of
gold, wrought with flowers, bearing QUEEN
ANNE's train.
10. Certain Ladies or Countesses, with plain
circlets of gold without flowers.

25

IV,1,2452

A royal train, believe me. These I know:
Who's that that bears the sceptre?

26

IV,1,2456

A bold brave gentleman. That should be
The Duke of Suffolk?

27

IV,1,2459

And that my Lord of Norfolk?

28

IV,1,2461

Heaven bless thee!
[Looking on QUEEN ANNE]
Thou hast the sweetest face I ever look'd on.
Sir, as I have a soul, she is an angel;
Our king has all the Indies in his arms,
And more and richer, when he strains that lady:
I cannot blame his conscience.

29

IV,1,2471

Those men are happy; and so are all are near her.
I take it, she that carries up the train
Is that old noble lady, Duchess of Norfolk.

30

IV,1,2475

Their coronets say so. These are stars indeed;
And sometimes falling ones.

31

IV,1,2484

You saw
The ceremony?

32

IV,1,2489

Good sir, speak it to us.

33

IV,1,2510

But, what follow'd?

34

IV,1,2531

What two reverend bishops
Were those that went on each side of the queen?

35

IV,1,2536

He of Winchester
Is held no great good lover of the archbishop's,
The virtuous Cranmer.

36

IV,1,2542

Who may that be, I pray you?

37

IV,1,2548

He will deserve more.
