Reckless Shakespeare MERRY WIVES of WINDSOR
Merry Wives is probably the only “Farce”that Shakespeare wrote.
Elizabeth 1st loved the character of Falstaff,based on a dysfunctional ,drunken Earl,

The Audience and the Queen all loved the comedy and earthiness of this scoundrel Falstaff.
So Shakespeare had to write the sequel / Part 2/ 3 etc…
