A Lost Jacobean Tragedy: Henry the Una (c 1619)

Matthew Steggle

Abstract


This article concerns a lost play whose title is partially preserved in "List D" of British Library: Cotton MS. Tiberius E. X. Connecting together existing scholarly work on other plays on the list, and combining this with evidence from the computer database EEBO-TCP, it proposes a new complete title for the play; discusses its possible sources in Spanish history; and addresses anew questions of its date, company provenance, and even authorship.
