Claudius is the king, who killed Hamlet's father to get to the throne. He was not about to let his own brother rule the throne. He wanted to have power. He was willing to kill anyone for it. Some people are so obsessed with power that they won't let anyone stand in their way. He can be seen as the source of Hamlet's madness. Hamlet truly does hate him and wants him to die. He needs revenge to make everything right. He won't be happy until Hamlet is rotting in hell…

Coel Hen, King of Northern Britain (c.350-c.420) (Welsh: Coel; Latin: Coelius; English: Cole)  Coel Hen or Coel the Old is known to most of us through the famous nursery rhyme:   Old King Cole was a merry old soul....   He is also a familiar figure in ancient Welsh genealogies, for most of the Celtic British monarchies claimed descent from him in one form or another. He appears to have lived around the turn from the 4th to the 5th century. Illustration by Frederick Richardson.
