Why should Horatio have control over Denmark rather than Fortinbras?

  1. Can you please explain it in a sense that describes the characters and the events of the play?
  2. Thank you!!

I don't think it was possible for Horatio to be King of Denmark. He is not of Royal lineage. Is this a hypothetical question?

  1. As Horatio's lawyer, prepare a speech that will convince your audience to give control of Denmark over to Horatio rather than Fortinbras. Your speech will be a critical analysis of the characters and events of the play and will explore your understanding of these aspects.

I was given this question but do not have a very limited understanding on hamlet so could not form a response. this is the question I have to answer though.
