The King forgives Bertram and agrees to a marriage between Bertram and Lafew’s daughter. Bertram gives Lafew a ring, which is then recognized by Lafew and the King as Helen’s. Bertram’s claim that it was thrown to him from a window leads to his arrest for Helen’s murder. Diana appears claiming Bertram for her husband, and her statements about Bertrams promises are supported by Parolles. Bertram claims, in turn, that Diana is a prostitute, but her possession of his ancestral ring invalidates that claim. As charges and countercharges mount, a pregnant Helen enters and tells Bertram that she has met his seemingly impossible demands.
