Of course my Lord I wish nothing more for though kingdom to prosper
Claudius, Polonius, Laertes, and Gertrude Act III Scene I
We shall feast to celebrate all my good knights and noble men. Ready the connons squire.
Claudius killed his own brother just because he wanted the Throne. This scene in the story was extremely important as to it applied the entire plot to the story and caused the main character to Hamlet to go absolutely crazy. This is the main conflict in the play "Hamlet".
The irony in this scene with Gertrude just completely getting over the death of her husband without even knowing that her husband was murdered by her new king Claudius. Hamlet goes crazy with the fact that he knows what Claudius did and his mother got over it so fast.
Claudius goes on in the Kingdom without any regrets of killing his own family for the throne. It is terrible that he did this and has no regrets what so ever, little does he know Hamlet has a plan to get him to feel all kinds of regret. With his play he really fools Claudius by reenacting his fathers murder as a play.
