The first known performance of King Lear was on Dec. 26, 1606.
In the play by Shakespeare, the tragic King is driven insane when two of his three daughters turn against him. Cordelia was only one who remained loyal. The other two only pretended to love him until they got their inheritance and then kicked him out of their homes to fend for himself in the wilderness.
Although not a daughter of King Lear, Miranda was the daughter of another Shakespearean protagonist. Her father was Prospero from The Tempest.
