• A burlesque by the English dramatist Henry Carey (d. 1743), firstproduced in 1734. It was subtitled The Most Tragical tragedy that ever was Tragediz'd by any Company of Tragedians. The bombastic title character is the King of Queerummania; his name has sometimes been applied to any self-important person with a taste for inflated rhetoric. Two other characters are the pompous Aldiborontiphoscophornio and the jovial Rigdum-Funnidos.
