He desires so much to be the king of denmark that even after gertrude was killed by the poison he thinks that he can still maintain his kingdom. He tries to cover up her death by saying "She swoons to see [Hamlet and Laertes] bleed" Act 5, Scene 2. This shows the sin greed because it says all he cares about is the throne and not his own wife dying. In the scene just quoted, laertes and claudius have a plan on killing hamlet.

Hamlet refers to Claudius as a weed that chokes the garden and warns Gertrude not to "spread the compost on the weeds, To make them ranker”. The line “something is rotten in the state of Denmark” also refers to the larger theme of the connection between the moral legitimacy of a ruler and the health of the state as a whole.

The story of Hamlet by William Shakespeare is a story of betrayal, revenge, and intrigue. Hamlet, the title character discovers that his uncle killed his father and married his mother effectively stealing the throne. Hamlet decides he must kill his uncle Claudius as revenge for what he had done. However, as the new king, Hamlet isn't sure how to get to him, so he decides to fake madness, but his plan backfires as Claudius doesn't trust him and makes sure he is always watched. In his fumbled plan for revenge, Hamlet accidentally kills Polonius, forces Polonius's son Laertes to seek revenge against him, and drives Ophelia crazy causing her to kill herself.
Hamlet is appalled at the revelation that his father has been murdered, and the alleged spirit of the former king tells him that the only “villain” to blame is Claudius “who now wears his crown”. Hamlet’s worst fears about his uncle are confirmed.

Also in the Treatment of Gertrude, hamlet accidently killed Polonius thinking it was the king spying on them in front of Gertrude, before Polonius dies he says “O, I am slain!”. Right after that Hamlet told his mother, Gertrude, that the new king killed his father, she didn’t believe and told him to be quiet that she couldn’t handle it.
