Plays by men about amorous rulers, such as Dryden’s The Indian Emperour and the Earl of Orrery’s Mustapha, tend to emphasize the ruler’s neglect of his political or military duties, and sometimes to show him as the victim of scheming women. Behn’s outlook is quite different, and Frederick is no victim: she portrays not the neglect of power but its abuse, and the cruel ease with which it oppresses women. The criticism of misused power is new in its complexity, and raises a question which was increasingly to dominate drama until the deposition of James II: how can subjects cope with, or even intelligibly talk about, a ruler who remains the arbiter of justice but whose conduct is, in any normal understanding of the term, criminal?

The alternative possibilities of life and landscape that are felt, if not gained, in The Young King, are not even felt here. 13 Indeed, cross-dressing paradoxically conﬁrms the preponderance of male desire.
