As is usual for princes, Don Pedro’s courtiers are conniving schemers. But in this case, they're not conniving maliciously -- the only one who wishes him ill is his bastard brother. The others are just plotting to get Beatrice and Benedick to fall in love. As everybody knows, Beatrice would rather listen to a dog bark than a man swear he loves her. And Benedick would prefer a clever horse to a clever woman. Of course, the rest is history…
"Some Cupid kills with arrows, some with traps." ~ Hero, Leonato's daughter
