Who Was Hamlet trying to kill when he killed Polonius?

Asked by Faith Farmer

What Hamlet doesn’t know is that Polonius is hiding behind an arras in Gertrude’s room, and Polonius quickly calls for help too, thinking that the Queen is in danger. Hamlet thinks that the man hiding there is Claudius, whom he wants to kill, so he stabs Polonius through the curtain.
