Self-fashioning, a term introduced by Stephen Greenblatt (Renaissance Self-Fashioning, 1980), is used to describe the process of constructing ones identity and public persona toward political power. He perceived that fashioning oneself and being fashioned by cultural institutions such as family, religion, state, were inseparably intertwined, and there were no moments of pure, unfettered subjectively. The kingship in the Elizabethan period utilized self-fashioning and the theatrical politics. The theatrical practice of the power was beneficial for intensifying and maintaining the Tudor monarchy. Shakespeare was under the influence of theatricality in the political, social, and cultural fields. Shakespeares history plays served the manifestation of histrionic quality of power dealing with the histories connected with Queen Elizabeth 1. This article starts from the premise that political power is highly theatrical in Shakespeare time, and explores the theatrical strategies by the main characters in Henry IV Part 1 and Henry IV Part 2.
