Shakespeare: General Q & A

How many plays does Falstaff appear in?

Falstaff, generally held to be Shakespeare's greatest comic character, appears in three plays: 1 Henry IV, 2 Henry IV, and The Merry Wives of Windsor. A character named Sir John Fastolfe appears in 1 Henry VI, but he is not the jolly Falstaff featured in the above-mentioned plays. For more on Falstaff, please click here.
