Tempest Character Analysis William Shakespeare's last play The Tempest is a story about Prospero (the rightful duke of Milan). He is betrayed by his brother Antonio and left on a ship with his daughter Miranda to die. Only things are not going according to plan and Prospero and Miranda arrive on an island. Prospero is seeking his revenge. Coming back from a wedding in Africa a ship containing Prosperos enemies is attacked by the tempest and scatters its passengers about the island.
But this is not just any storm: it is one orchestrated by Prospero, the ruler of the island. This island that Prospero rules has few inhabitants; his beloved daughter, Miranda, his slave, Caliban, and his spirit-slave, Ariel. This island is Prospero’s creation, after he was forced to it from Milan, where he once was a duke. From the backstory the audience learns that Prospero possesses considerable magic power, and upon his arrival to the island freed Ariel from a witch’s curse and took her son Caliban as his slave. Twelve years later “by accident most strange, bountiful Fortune” the King of Naples, his son, the usurping duke Antonio, and other men sailed near the island (I.II.178).

In Prospero’s case, he was the rightful Duke of Milan but had been sent adrift in a boat with his three year old daughter, Miranda, by his usurping brother, Antonio. (“The Tempest” Encyclopedia Britannica) Prospero says he used to be the Duke of Milan until his brother, Antonio, betrayed him and stole the dukedom, with the consent of the King, while Prospero was busy learning magic in his library, which wasn’t his real job.
