The Duchess of Malfi (originally published as The Tragedy of the Dutchesse of Malfy) is a Jacobean revenge tragedy play written by the English dramatist John Webster in 1612–1613. It was first performed privately at the Blackfriars Theatre, then later to a larger audience at The Globe, in 1613–1614.

An apartment in the palace of the Duchess. You say you would fain be taken for an eminent courtier? Castruccio. Tis the very main27 of my ambition. Let me see: you have a reasonable good face for ‘t already, and your night-cap expresses your ears sufficient largely. The duchess was deliver’d of a son, ‘tween the hours twelve and one in the night, Anno Dom. 1504,’- that ‘s this year -‘decimo nono Decembris,’- that ‘s this night - ‘taken according to the meridian of Malfi,’- that ‘s our duchess: happy discovery! - ‘The lord of the first house being combust in the ascendant, signifies short life; and Mars being in a human sign, joined to the tail of the Dragon, in the eighth house, doth threaten a violent death.

Get all the key plot points of John Webster's The Duchess of Malfi on one page. From the creators of SparkNotes. It begins in the palace of the Duchess, a young widow and the ruler of the Italian town of Amalfi. Her steward, Antonio, has just returned from a visit to the French court, and Bosola, a murderer and former employee of her brother, the Cardinal, has just returned from his punishment. Soon Duke Ferdinand, the Duchess’s other brother, enters with his whole retinue.

The Duchess of Malfi, which he wrote around 1612, is about an actual historical couple who'd lived about a hundred years before. That's right-the Duchess and Antonio were real people, whose marriage ended up going about as well as it does in Webster's play (which is to say, not well at all)

The play follows the newly widowed Duchess of Malfi as she falls in love with a man of a lower social class, Antonio, a steward, and their doomed marriage. Against her brother's (Ferdinand) advice she marries Antonio secretly and then the two lovers try to flee. Antonio manages to flee with one of their sons but the Duchess is arrested and later killed.
