  One of the most popular anecdotes about William Shakespeare and his company's star actor Richard Burbage is the following:

One day, Burbage was asked to "entertain" a young lady of society after the end of a performance. Always intent to leave a favorable impression on occasions like these (with which, due to his prominence, he was about as familiar as any top-selling movie star would be these days), Burbage took special care to look his best when complying with her invitation; not least because the lady had specifically requested that he come fully made up as the play's titular king, which happened to be one of his signature roles. When he finally arrived at her door, he grandiosely asked her maid to inform her mistress "that King ________ is come." From inside the appartment, however, his announcement was answered in a voice that he knew only too well: "Please inform the gentleman that William the Conqueror came before ________ ..."

Who was the king (and which was the play) in question?
