Richard the Bastard

In King John, the Bastard's actual name is Philip Faulconbridge, son of Lady Faulconbridge, who became pregnant with Philip through her illicit liaison with King Richard I. With her legitimate husband, Sir Robert Faulconbridge, she gave birth to another son, Robert Faulconbridge. Early in the play, King John knights Philip and renames him Sir Richard, thus the confusion of names.
