The Duchess of Malfi

A detailed note on the title of the play?

I want to know how to describe the title of the play, and if it justifies the play or not?

The title reflects who the play is about. The Duchess of Malfi tells the story of the Duchess—who is never named—and her attempts to live in peace with her loving husband and children, attempts that ultimately fail due to the machinations and greed of her hostile brothers.
