Chain of Beings Flowchart

Flowchart by , created over 2 years ago

Shakespeare's audience believed in a great Chain of Being that determined the natural order of events. The chain was a series of hierarchical links with God at the top. Each level of the chain had its own hierarchy, with the king at the top of the human level. Disruptions in the chain could also disrupt the laws of nature and cause bizarre events to occur.
