King Henry the Sixth Part III – Act II, Scene V

Act II, Scene V

Painted by Jh. Boydell
Engraved by J. Ogborne

‘A field of battle, near Towton in Yorkshire. King Henry, Son that had kill’d his Father. Father that had kill’d his Son, Queen, Prince of Wales, & Exeter in the distance.’

Fath. But let me see: Is this our foeman’s face? / Ah, no, no, no, it is mine only son!

Son. Oh God: it is my father’s face, / Whom in this conflict I unawares have kill’d.
