Count Palatine is one of the suitors coming to Belmont for a chance at Portia's hand in marriage. Portia thinks he is a whiny man, He doth nothing but frown, as who should say, “An you will not have me, choose.”

County Palatine is one of the characters of ‘The Merchant of Venice’. By William Shakespeare

To marry Portia many suitors came all over the world. One of them was County Palatine. He did nothing but frowning. He listened to many funny 😂 tales but never laughed. Portia was feared about him that, when he will grow older he will be a weeping philosopher.

Portia believed that it is better to marry a dead head with a bone in his mouth,than to marry him.
