Scene 3.1

3.1 - In Duke Frederick's palace.

Duke Frederick has summoned Oliver, and demands that Oliver find his brother Orlando and bring him to Frederick. He tells Oliver that he is seizing all Oliver's land and property until Orlando is produced, and that if Oliver cannot find his brother within a year, he will be banished from Duke Frederick's realm forever. Oliver vainly protests that he did not help Orlando escape and does not know where he is, since he never loved his brother in the first place. But Duke Frederick icily criticizes him for saying such a heartless thing, and turns him out of the palace.
