Other accepted answers: nothing

"Nothing will come of nothing, speak again". Lear really wants her to try again but she counters that she cannot "heave my heart into my mouth" and also doubts her sisters sincerity, "Why have my sisters husbands, if they say they love you all? ". Lear cannot believe her lack of warmth "so young and so untender". Cordelia counters "so young, my lord, and true".

Great Birnam Wood Riddle


Macduff and the opposing forces camouflage themselves with branches from Birnam Forest. Dunsinane is a peak of the Sidlaw Hills, in the parish of Collace, Perthshire, Scotland, 8 m. N.E. of Perth. It is 1012 ft. high, and commands a fine view of the Carse of Gowrie and the valley of the Tay. Its chief claim is due to the association with Birnam Wood (about 12 m. N.W.) in these passages in Macbeth. An old fort on the summit, of which faint traces are still discernible, is traditionally called Macbeth's Castle.

The Bloody Child Riddle

His mother had a Caesarean.

A bit of a quibble really but those apparitions did not play fair; Macduff was from his mother's womb untimely ripped. Presumably this was an early Caesarean.

The Thane Of Fife Riddle

The answer is Macduff. Only the first apparition answers straightforwardly. Macbeth should have taken notice of such specific information. The other two apparitions present riddles, where the answer is not what it seems.

The Actions Of Pericles

Understands the riddle to mean incest and hints to Antiochus his understanding.

Antiochus realises from Pericles' hints that Pericles has understood the riddle and determines to have him killed. I am not aware of any other reference to incest in Shakespeare. Incest seems to retain its rightful shock value much more in Shakespeare and the classics.

The Prince Of Arragon

All of these

The silver casket is said to bring the chooser 'as much as he deserves', which turns out to be The Portrait of a Blinking Idiot.
The schedule reads (extract)
"Take what wife you will to bed,
I will ever be your head:
So be gone: you are sped.
Still more fool I shall appear
By the time I linger here
With one fool's head I came to woo,
But I go away with two."
