Tamora, Queen of the Goths (Germans)... a feisty, power-hungry woman who is an early Queen Margaret (Henry VI) and Lady Macbeth together. She swears revenge on Titus for the murder of her sons in Act 1, Scene 1
I'm hoping a pattern is beginning to emerge for you :p This is Shakespeare's first revenge tragedy, and he copies heavily from Thomas Kyd. For if Kyd is said to have 'out-Herod Herod' (in terms of being nasty and brutal in dealings with people) then Shakespeare in this play is trying to out-Kyd Kyd :)
I was once told that this play, out of all 38 plays, can be neatly summed up as the WTF play :p x
