Is crown'd so soon, and broke his solemn oath? 100
As I bethink me, you should not be king
Till our King Henry had with death.
And will you your head in Henry's glory,
And rob his temples of the diadem, 104
Now in his life, against your holy oath?
O! 'tis a fault unpardonable.
Off with the crown; and, with the crown, his head;
And, whilst we , take time to . 108
Clif. That is my office, for my father's sake.
Queen. Nay, stay; let's hear thehe makes.
York. She-wolf of France, but worse than wolves of France,
Whose tongue more poisons than the adder's tooth! 112
How ill-beseeming is it in thy sex
To triumph, like an Amazonian ,
Upon their woes whom fortune !
But that thy face is, , unchanging, 116
Made impudent with of evil deeds,
I would , proud queen, to make thee blush:
To tell thee whence thou cam'st, of whom deriv'd,
Were shame enough to shame thee, wert thou not shameless. 120
Thy father bears the of King of Naples,
Of both the Sicils and Jerusalem;
Yet not so wealthy as an English yeoman.
Hath that poor monarch taught thee to insult? 124
It needs not, nor it thee not, proud queen,
Unless the adage must be verified,
That beggars mounted run their horse to death.
