    Titus returns victorious from the Goth Wars with prisoners. The Goth queen Tamora begs for the life of her eldest son Albarus to be spared. Titus orders him to be executed to atone for the deaths of his own sons in battle.

    Saturninus and his brother Bassianus are rivals to become emperor but the people choose Titus. He refuses and lets Saturninus take the throne. The new emperor then takes a wife,Lavinia, Titus’ only daughter but she is betrothed to Bassanius. He runs off with Lavinia, assisted by her brothers. Titus is outraged by their treason and kills Mutius, his own son, who is guarding the door after their escape. Saturninus takes Tamora as his wife. She promises herself revenge.
