"Was ever woman in this humour woo'd?
Was ever woman in this humour won?
I'll have her; but I will not keep her long..."
See in text (Act I - Act I, Scene 2)
The vile King Richard has not only killed Lady Anne’s husband, but he also has successfully wooed her, right in front of her father-in-law, whom he also killed. He gleefully recites this soliloquy, praising himself for wooing Lady Anne’s hand, and foreshadows her death (“but I will not keep her long”). Richard is revealed as a cruel manipulator, using people to further his own ambitions.
