    • The Shakespearean actors were based on an actual acting couple, although the timing is roughly forty years previous to Paladin's era.

      Lucia Elizabeth Bartollozzi, (June 1797-Aug 8, 1856) half English, half Italian, married Auguste Armand Vestris at the age of 16. He abandoned her four years later, but she continued using his name in her theater career. She was both an actress and a contralto opera singer, and, while popular in her time, was better known as a theater producer and manager. In 1838 she married Charles James Mathews (Dec 26, 1803--June 24, 1878), an English actor known for his ability to handle French-speaking roles.They did a tour of America that same year, apparently to lukewarm reviews.
