For Much Ado About Nothing, the protagonist Claudio is gullible, and believes the lie that his love is unfaithful to him. In King Lear, Lear is prideful, and takes his daughter’s refusal to pour praise onto him as a personal affront.

Lear believes that his daughter does not care for him and so takes away her inheritance, while Claudio believes that his betrothed has been unfaithful and so shames her on their wedding day.

This implies that it is time to find this ‘[new] fame’, through abandoning Medea and marrying the King’s daughter, as the fame inherited from Medea’s sacrifices and assistance has diminished.
