King Lear the ruler of Britain plans to divide his kingdom between his 3 daughters . Gonreli, Regan and Cordelia. He commands them to say which of them loves him the most. He promises to give the greatest shares of the kingdom to that daughter.
I love you father more than anything in the entire world father.
King Lear doesn't like Cordelia's answer so he goes into a rage and he disowns her and he banishes her from his kingdom. He takes away everything he owns away from her. He divides her shares of the Kingdom between her two sisters. The king of France has courted Cordelia and he still wants to marry her even without her lands. SO she accompanies him to France without her father's blessing.
I love you more than I love myself and more than I love my husband.
There are no words to describe how much I love you.
