Act I, Scenes ii-iv

The Duchess' questions to the spirit elicit ambiguous responses. The syntax of the reply suggests that a duke is alive who Henry shall depose or who shall depose Henry. This duke is probably York, though the spirit's replies are too vague to comprehend. Since practicing the occult was illegal in this time, the Duchess is arrested, and Gloucester will be held to blame for her behavior.
