Critic Irving Ribner notes that a manifestation of Machiavellian philosophy may be seen in Bolingbroke. There are references to protection from heathens, they wrote, suggesting Richard III's interest in the Crusades. The first Act begins with King Richard sitting majestically on his throne in full state, having been requested to arbitrate a dispute between Thomas Mowbray and Richard's cousin, Henry Bolingbroke, later Henry IVwho has accused Mowbray of squandering money given to him by Richard for the king's soldiers and of murdering Bolingbroke's uncle, the Duke of Gloucester.

The historical parallels in the succession of Richard II may not have been intended as political comment on the contemporary situation, [11] with the weak Richard II analogous to Queen Elizabeth and an implicit argument in favour of her replacement by a monarch capable of creating a stable dynasty, but lawyers investigating John Hayward 's historical work, The First Part of the Life and Raigne of King Henrie IV, a book previously believed to have taken from Shakespeare's Richard II, chose to make this connection. Richard was determined never again to suffer a humiliation of the kind inflicted upon him by the Appellants.
