KING HENRY VI (1421-71) Shakespeare introduces his eponymous hero late in the play-at the beginning of act 3-thus underlining his insignificance as king and character (though Shakespeare can delay the introduction of his protagonist with a quite opposite effect, as in Hamlet and Othello).
His son Henry VI is but a child, and for now it is King Henry V's surviving brothers Glouceter and Bedford who are in charge.

 Literary Encyclopedia: Henry IV, Part One   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
Shakespeare’s King Henry IV, Part 1 (or 1 Henry IV) is his most highly praised history play and is generally considered one of his several masterpieces, whether it is seen as an autonomous drama independent of its sequel (2 Henry IV) or as the first half of a two-part work.
The two Henry IV plays are particularly well known because of their chief comic figure, the fat knight Sir John Falstaff, who is a character celebrated by a long series of critics from John Dryden to Harold Bloom as the best of all comic characters.
Many critics think Falstaff is at his best in Part 1, and for this and other reasons, Part 1 has often been preferred (though not unanimously) by critics discussing the merits of the two plays.
