Henry IV, Part 1 and Henry IV, Part 2 are plays by William Shakespeare and part of his cycle of Histories which, though probably not written in sequence, trace many of the pivotal moments of the history of the British monarchy from the end of King Richard II's reign through that of Henry IV (Henry Bolingbroke) -- who had deposed his cousin Richard II -- as well as Henry IV's successors Henry V and Henry VI, the War of the Roses between the Houses of York and Lancaster, and finally the reign of Richard III, who was defeated by the founder of the Tudor monarchy, Henry VII (formerly the Earl of Richmond), to whom, in turn, an ancestor of Shakespeare's rendered services remembered in the family's heraldic motto, Non sanz droict (not without right).
