Paulina (The Winter’s Tale) Paulina is a Sicilian noblewoman in William Shakespeare’s 1623 pastoral play, The Winter’s Tale. She is a strong and courageous woman. When the king, Leontes, condemns his pregnant wife, Hermione, to death for his mistaken assumption of her infidelity, it is Paulina who steps to the forefront. She fiercely defends Hermione’s good name and excoriates the king for his brutal treatment of her. For this she is subjected to horrendous abuse, but she does not bend. After Hermione is (supposedly) put to death, Paulina still seems to have some sway in the court, declaring that Leontes will not marry again until she, Paulina, finds a suitable wife for him, a condition with which he complies, now being aware of his arrogant wrongdoing. At play’s end, when a statue to Hermione has been erected, it is Paulina who breathes life into in, restoring her to life and reuniting her with her husband and daughter. Order is restored to the court, and Paulina takes on a new husband (that first one was a bit wishy-washy for her). All in a day’s work for Paulina.
