The title of The Spanish Tragedy has three references: the devastation of the main character in losing his son; the larger tragedy of the unified kingdoms of Spain and Portugal reaching the end of the play without an heir; and the concept that revenge wreaks tragedy not only in life but also unendingly in the afterlife. The subtitle Hieronimo is Mad Again, probably appended long after The Spanish Tragedy had enjoyed great popularity, refers to a prequel play entitled I Hieronimo probably written after Thomas Kyd's death.
