NOTES

King John, one of William Shakespeare's plays, like most of his history plays, presents a struggle for the English crown. Research suggests that Shakespeare wrote King John in 1594-96. It was published in the 1623 First Folio. Sources include Raphael Holinshed's Chronicles. A contemporary play, The Troublesome Reign of John King of England, may be a source, too. [Folger Library]
