Hotspur more than anything else, has a code of honor that is mostly tied up with his family and what he believes is just. In one of the first scenes that we see him in, King Henry IV confronts him, and more or less orders him to cut off contact with a family member, who has married the daughter of Glendower, one of his enemies.
