KING enters with his power and they cross the stage. Alarum to the battle.
DOUGLAS and Sir Walter
BLUNT, disguised as the
What is thy name that in the battle thus
Thou crossest me? What honor dost thou seek
Upon my head?
Know then, my name is Douglas,
5And I do haunt thee in the battle thus
Because some tell me that thou art a king.
They tell thee true.
The Lord of Stafford dear today hath bought
Thy likeness, for instead of thee, King Harry,
10This sword hath ended him. So shall it thee,
Unless thou yield thee as my prisoner.
I was not born a yielder, thou proud Scot,
And thou shalt find a king that will revenge
Lord Stafford’s death.
15O Douglas, hadst thou fought at Holmedon thus,
I never had triumphed upon a Scot.
All’s done, all’s won; here breathless lies the King.
