A Royal Family
The author is often billed as Captain Robert Marshall, since he wrote a number of his earlier plays while still in the military.
The original text
Subtitled "a Comedy of Romance", it was originally written and probably performed in 1898, while he was stationed in South Africa as aide-de-camp to Sir Walter Hely-Hutchinson, Governor of the Colony of Natal.
Published in London by Chiswick Press, 1904.
