  • ACT I SCENE I. Rome. Before the Capitol. The Tomb of the ANDRONICI appearing, the Tribunes and Senators aloft. Enter, below, from one side, SATURNINUS and his Followers, and, from the other side, BASSIANUS and his Followers, with drum and colours Noble patricians, patrons of my right, Defend the justice of my cause with arms, And, countrymen, my loving followers, Plead my successive title with your swords: I am his first-born son, that was the last That wore the imperial diadem of Rome, Then let my father's honours live in me, Nor wrong mine age with this indignity. Romans, friends, followers, favorers of my right, If ever Bassianus, Caesar's son, Were gracious in the eyes of royal Rome, Keep then this passage to the Capitol And suffer not dishonour to approach The imperial seat, to virtue consecrate, To justice, continence and nobility, But let desert in pure election shine, And, Romans, fight for freedom in your choice. Enter MARCUS ANDRONICUS, aloft, with the crown Princes, that strive by factions and by friends
