Hamlet is convinced that he must kill Claudius in order to avenge his father’s “foul and most unnatural murder.” (I.V.25) Hamlet carefully plans the killing so that Claudius will go to hell in order for his father to be at peace. In addition, Hamlet is the only character in the play that knows the truth of his father’s death but is condemned by Claudius as a “madman that [must] not go unwatched.”(III.I.190) Therefore, Claudius’s royal servants and his wife, Gertrude, are convinced that Hamlet is an insane man whose words cannot be trusted.

In the end, Claudius‘s corruption gets the better of him as he is killed by his own poison that Hamlet inflected on him but Hamlet is also killed by the same poison.
