Abstract

King David was a popular character in the Spanish comedia, in part because of his many stories. He was giant slayer, musician, anointed king, survivor of assassination attempts, adulterer, and tragic father. In addition, his perceived connection to the Spanish Habsburgs, as well as to earlier Spanish kings, made him a religious and political analogue. To the list of well-known plays about David, I want to add and discuss briefly two lesser-known works, Las niñezes y primer triunfo de David by Manuel Antonio Vargas and Los trabajos de David y finezas de Michol by Cristóbal Lozano Montesinos. Each of these plays develops aspects of David's personal, spiritual, and political representation that contribute to the elaboration of this complex and intriguing theatrical figure.
