He was also affected by other people that might suggest he wasn’t just affected by his parents. Ophelia ignored him when he would’ve really needed some one to talk to about his future actions on a personal level; she later committed suicide which made him feel more emotional. Claudius was really the reason for everything happening; he killed his brother, King Hamlet Sr. in a plot to marry Gertrude quickly enough that he could steal the throne from Hamlet and become king.
As the mother of a grieving son, Gertrude should have been more sensitive to Hamlet's feelings. Instead, less than two months after King Hamlet's death, Gertrude remarries Claudius, her dead husband's own brother. Gertrude should have realized how humiliated Hamlet would feel as a result, because at that time it was considered incestuous for a widow to marry her husband's brother. There is also jealousy on the part of a son, who feels that his mother should be giving him more attention during the mourning period. Gertrude is not in touch with her own son's feelings to see why he is angry.

Hamlet loves his mother dearly in the beginning of the play.

However at the end of the play his mind is overtaken by the thought of his mother’s sexual actions with Claudius and he is not able to think. In “Love in Hamlet” Rosenberg explains that “his confusion over his mother’s involvement with Claudius raises for Hamlet the question of whether all women are innately whores.” At this point Hamlet no longer cares about his mother, he only cares about her relations with his father’s brother Claudius. Although the relationship between Hamlet and his mother is uncertain in some parts of the play, by the end it is clear how they both feel about each
If Laertes was so concerned with her well being when she was in love with Hamlet then why didn't Laertes show concern with her life and protect her during her weak point of her life? I do believe that Laertes truly loved Ophelia and would do anything for her but at the time of her madness he was too concerned with the death of his father to pay attention to Ophelia. Polonius acts toward Ophelia with dispise and disgust. Polonius uses her as a tool to become closer and get on Claudius' good side. Polonius cares nothing for Ophelia: she is considered as a pawn in a chess game only to protect the king, Polonius.
