Of all his roles in Australia Julius Knight was most closely identified with that of Napoleon in the immensely popular play, A Royal Divorce. Its popularity lay in its ability to 'juggle the facts of history' to emphasise the drama's heroic and romantic elements.
'When, by a flagrant departure from history, Josephine appears on the Scene after Waterloo, and, talking ecstatically of "My Soldier hero!" begs to be allowed to proceed with him to St Helena, the audience thinks all this "just fine".'
The Daily Telegraph, 3 March 1914
