Excerpt: ACT I. SCENE I. KING JOHN?S palace. [Enter KING JOHN, QUEEN ELINOR, PEMBROKE, ESSEX, SALISBURY, and others, with CHATILLON.] KING JOHN: Now, say, Chatillon, what would France with us? CHATILLON: Thus, after greeting, speaks the King of France In my behavior to the majesty, The borrow?d majesty, of England here. QUEEN ELINOR: A strange beginning: ?borrow?d majesty!? KING JOHN: Silence, good mother; hear the embassy. CHATILLON: Philip of France, in right and true behalf Of thy deceased brother Geffrey?s son, Arthur Plantagenet, lays most lawful claim To this fair island and the territories, To Ireland, Poictiers, Anjou, Touraine, Maine, Desiring thee to lay aside the sword Which sways usurpingly these several titles, And put these same into young Arthur?s hand, Thy nephew and right royal sovereign.
