Excerpt: The Life and Death of King John; Actus Primus -- Scaena Prima -- Enter King John, Queene Elinor, Pembroke, Essex, and Salisbury, with the Chattilion of France. King John. Now say Chatillion, what would France with us? Chat. Thus (after greeting) speakes the King of France, In my behaviour to the Majesty, The borrowed Majesty of England heere. Elea. A strange beginning: borrowed Majesty? K. John. Silence (good mother) heare the Embassie. Chat. Philip of France, in right and true behalfe Of thy deceased brother, Geffreyes sonne, Arthur Plantaginet, laies most lawfull claime To this faire Iland, and the Territories: To Ireland, Poyctiers, Aniowe, Torayne, Maine, Desiring thee to lay aside the sword Which swaies usurpingly these severall titles, And put the same into yong Arthurs hand, Thy Nephew, and right royall Soveraigne. K. John. What followes if we disallow of this? Chat. The proud controle of fierce and bloudy warre, To inforce these rights, so forcibly withheld, K. John. Heere have we war for war, & bloud for bloud, Controlement for controlement: so answer France. Chat. Then take my Kings defiance from my mouth, The farthest limit of my Embassie. K. John. Beare mine to him, and so depart in peace, Be thou as lightning in the eies of France; For ere thou canst report, I will be there: The thunder of my Cannon shall be heard. So hence: be thou the trumpet of our wrath, And sullen presage of your owne decay: An honourable conduct let him have, Pembroke looke too?t: farewell Chattillion.
