The New International Encyclopædia/Virginius
VIRGIN′IUS. A tragedy by James Sheridan Knowles, produced first at Glasgow, and then at Covent Garden, May 17, 1820, with Macready as Virginius, Miss Foote as Virginia, and Charles Kemble as Icilius. The author received a poem of congratulation from Charles Lamb. The subject had been suggested to Knowles by Kean; but when the drama was completed, Kean found himself unable to produce it.
