Cordelia

Cordelia in Shakespeare's play, the youngest of the three daughters of King Lear, who is rejected by her father as ungrateful when she refrains from extravagant statements of her love for him, but who unlike her elder sisters is loyal to him; she is seen as a figure of loving duty and self-sacrifice.
