For my part, Noble Lords, I care not which, Or Somerset, at Yorke, all's one to me. Yorke. If Yorke haue ill demean'd himselfe in France, Then let him be denay'd the Regent‑ship. Som.
[470]
If Somerset be vnworthy of the Place, Let Yorke be Regent, I will yeeld to him.
Warw. Whether your Grace be worthy, yea or no, Dispute not that, Yorke is the worthyer. Card. Ambitious Warwicke, let thy betters speake. Warw.

The Cardinall's not my better in the field.
Buck. All in this presence are thy betters, Warwicke. Warw. Warwicke may liue to be the best of all. Salisb. Peace Sonne, and shew some reason Buckingham Why Somerset should be preferr'd in this? Queene.
[480]
Because the King forsooth will haue it so.
Humf. Madame, the King is old enough himselfe To giue his Censure: These are no Womens matters. Queene. If he be old enough, what needs your Grace To be Protector of his Excellence? Humf.
[485]
Madame, I am Protector of the Realme, And at his pleasure will resigne my Place.
Suff. Resigne it then, and leaue thine insolence. Since thou wert King; as who is King, but thou? The Common‑wealth hath dayly run to wrack,

The Dolphin hath preuayl'd beyond the Seas, And all the Peeres and Nobles of the Realme Haue beene as Bond‑men to thy Soueraigntie.
Card. The Commons hast thou rackt, the Clergies Bags Are lanke and leane with thy Extortions. Som.

Thy sumptuous Buildings, and thy Wiues Attyre Haue cost a masse of publique Treasurie.
Buck. Thy Crueltie in execution Vpon Offendors, hath exceeded Law, And left thee to the mercy of the Law. Queene.

Was't I? yea, I it was, prowd French‑woman: Could I come neere your Beautie with my Nayles, I could set my ten Commandements in your face.
King. Sweet Aunt be quiet, 'twas against her will. Duch. Against her will, good King? looke to't in time,
[510]
Shee'le hamper thee, and dandle thee like a Baby: Though in this place most Master weare no Breeches, She shall not strike Dame Elianor vnreueng'd.
Exit Elianor. Buck. Lord Cardinall, I will follow Elianor, And listen after Humfrey, how he proceedes:
[515]
Shee's tickled now, her Fume needs no spurres, Shee'le gallop farre enough to her destruction.
Exit Buckingham.
