In 2012, it was the second production in the BBC's four-part series ''Series/TheHollowCrown'', with Creator/JeremyIrons as Henry, Creator/TomHiddleston as Hal, Simon Russell Beale as Falstaff, and Joe Armstrong as Hotspur.

A perenially popular play, this has been adapted to film many times. Creator/OrsonWelles' experimental ''Film/ChimesAtMidnight'' combines the two parts with bits from ''Theatre/HenryV'' and ''Theatre/TheMerryWivesOfWindsor'', without changing any lines, the action now centering on Falstaff instead of Prince Hal.

** Owain Glyndwr was a Catholic Christian who was cheated out of his lands and declared a traitor by a friend of King Henry causing him to take up arms and declare independence. Owen Glendower believes that he is a Warlock. That said, the real Glyndwr often invoked Merlinic prophecy and mystical imagery, as seen in [[BalkanizeMe Tripartite Indenture]], which carved up England and Wales. Whether he actually believe his own hype is another matter entirely.

-->'''Henry IV''': Heavy is the head that wears the Crown.



** Falstaff is his complete opposite.
-->'Tis not due yet: I would be loth to pay him before his day. What need I be so forward with him that calls not on me? Well, 'tis no matter; Honour pricks me on. Yea, but how if Honour prick me off when I come on? how then? Can Honour set to a leg? No. Or an arm? No. Or take away the grief of a wound? No. Honour hath no skill in surgery then? No. What is Honour? a word. What is that word, Honour? Air. A trim reckoning! Who hath it? He that died o' Wednesday. Doth he feel it? No. Doth he hear it? No. Is it sensible then? Yes, to the dead. But will it not live with the living? No. Why? Detraction will not suffer it: therefore I'll none of it. Honour is a mere 'scutcheon, and so ends my catechism.

A history play by Creator/WilliamShakespeare. It is the first in a duology, the second being ''HenryIVPart2''. It actually also relates to two other Shakespearean plays-- ''Theatre/RichardII'' (which it follows) and ''HenryV'' (which it precedes).

The play winds down with another comic scene with Falstaff (who tries to convince Hal he killed Hotspur), King Henry orders his enemies executed, and Hal generously pardons one of the soldiers from the opposing side. But wait! All is not well. The Archbishop of York and the Earl of Northumberland, along with a number of other nobles, have joined forces and still plot against Henry IV and Hal. ToBeContinued in HenryIVPart2.

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Initially, Falstaff was "Sir John Oldcastle", an actual historical figure who was burned at the stake for [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lollardy Lollardy]], but Oldcastle's descendants complained, so Shakespeare substituted in the name of a knight who lived two generations after the play took place and was accused of cowardice (this character appears briefly in ''1 HenryVI,'' where his name is usually rendered as "Fastolfe" by modern editors). A few remnants of the original name survive in the play--e.g., at one point Hal calls Falstaff "my old lad of the castle".
