Therefore, Claudius betrays his brother because Claudius took the throne, his wife, and his life. These reasons of betrayal lead to Shakespeare 's timeless appeal because Betrayal is a human feeling or act we do and it is like a domino effect that happens again and again in Hamlet and in real life.
