WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A heroic ruler returns to his kingdom to claim his rightful throne. England's 1630 peace deal with Spain made a drama about Iberian events too sensitive; royal censors demanded that the play was reframed set in the distant world of ancient Rome.
(first performed 1631, published 1849)
