Part 1. Prince Hal defies his father, King Henry IV, by spending his time at Mistress Quickly's tavern in the company of the dissolute Falstaff and his companions. The king is threatened by a rebellion, led by Hal's rival Hotspur, his father Northumberland and his uncle Worcester. During the battle of Shrewsbury, Hal faces Hotspur in mortal combat.
Part 2. Northumberland is told of the death of his son, Hotspur. In service of the king, the Lord Chief Justice attempts to separate Falstaff from Prince Hal. The rebels continue to plot against the crown, but their forces are outwitted. This brings comfort to the dying king, who is finally reconciled with his son. Falstaff rushes to Hal's coronation with expectations of high office.
