Prince Karl

   Richard Mansfield played the title character in this four-act A. C. Gunter comedy at the Madison Square Theatre when it opened on 3 May 1896 for 122 performances, following a run at the Boston Museum. Thinking he will gain wealth by courting beautiful widow Florence Lowell, Prince Karl breaks his engagement with a rich old woman by faking suicide in order to pose as his own brother. Florence is on to his trickery, but falls in love with him despite it, informing him that her fortune came from Karl's deceased uncle so, in a sense, it belongs to him. Prince Karl was revived successfully on 20 November 1899 at the Garden Theatre.
