Thomas Middleton

Thomas Middleton (baptized April 18, 1580-1627) was an English Elizabethan playwright and poet. His best-known plays are The Changeling (written with William Rowley[?]) and Women Beware Women. It is also widely believed that he wrote The Revenger's Tragedy, previously attributed to Cyril Tourneur[?], and collaborated with Shakespeare on the scenes involving the Weird Sisters and Hecate in Macbeth.

Middleton was appointed City Chronologer of the City of London in 1620, a post that he held until his death. His successor in the post was Ben Jonson.
