This article is very much inadequate, especially compared with the one on Part 1. ZephyrAnycon 23:21, 15 July 2005 (UTC)

Overall, this article is terrible. The play doesn't focus on Falstaff, as is claimed. The "synopsis" misses major points and meanders around themes. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:17, 5 February 2013 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

See [old] discussion on Talk:Henry IV, Part 1. --Quuxplusone 02:03, 30 July 2005 (UTC) It is completely untrue that there is a widespread consensus Part II is worse than Part I. To many Part II is considered the better play and it is rare, even in Shakespeare, to find more profound and moving scenes than Henry IV on his deathbed. The reason Hal and Falstaff meet sporadically is to show that Falstaff is losing touch with Henry and Henry is completing his transition into a worthy heir.It demonstrates that their relationship is coming to an end and Falstaff is no longer worthy of a place in the Prince's life.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail[edit]

Why no mention of this classic piece of cinema being based around Henry IV? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:17, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

That's a very good question. Which aspect of Grail IS based around Henry IV? AndyJones 19:49, 29 September 2007 (UTC)
