A nobleman loyal to King Lear whose rank, earl, is below that of duke. The first thing we learn about Gloucester is that they are an adulterer, having parented a bastard son, Edmund.

They appear weak and ineffectual in the early acts, when they are unable to prevent Lear from being turned out of their own house, but they later demonstrate that they are also capable of great bravery.
