|Plot Summary of Titus Andronicus|
Titus returns to Rome after long years at war. He has watched most of his sons die in service to the Empire, and wants only to retire. With him he brings the Queen of the Goths and her sons as prisoners.
It is not long before the Goth Queen seduces the new Emperor, who's covetous ways have already caused trouble for Titus and his family. Soon, Titus finds himself betrayed by the Empire he so diligently served as the Goths slowly drive him insane by killing, mutilating, or exiling the remains of Titus's family.
But the Queen of the Goths is not having an easy time of it either, as she finds herself pregnant by her malicious servant, Aaron, who has his own agenda. While she works so hard to avenge herself and her slain son, she forgets that she still has two other children she could lose.
