An essay is presented on the popularity of William Shakespeare's "King Richard III" during the Romantic period. It is said that the hybrid nature of the Romantic theater and the character of Richard made the play very popular at that time. In a hybrid theatre, legitimate elements reportedly co-mingled with illegitimate elements. Melodrama was an illegitimate element in theatre that Elizabethans supposedly loved and "King Richard II" was said to be replete with melodramatic features.
