About the Book

The Life and Death of King John, a historical play by William Shakespeare, portrays the rule of John, King of England (ruled 1199-1216), child of Henry II of England and Eleanor of Aquitaine and father of Henry III of England. It is believed to be written during the 1590s but was not published until it showed up in the First Folio in 1623. John (24 December 1166 - 19 October 1216), also known as John Lackland or Softsword, was the King of England from 6 April 1199 until he died. His rule saw the loss of the duchy of Normandy to the French ruler Philip II in 1204, bringing about the breakdown of the vast majority of the Angevin Empire and the development in the force of the Capetian line over the next of the thirteenth 100 years. The baronial revolt toward the finish of John's rule saw the marking of the Magna Carta, a record frequently viewed as an early advance in the development of the constitution of the United Kingdom. Contemporary chroniclers were generally condemning John's activities as lord, and his rule has been an important topic for discussion and intermittent modification by historians from the sixteenth century onwards. Antiquarian Jim Bradbury has summed up the contemporary authentic assessment of John's positive characteristics, it is today typically viewed as a "focused overseer, a capable man, a capable general to see that John". In any case, present-day students of history concur that he likewise had many deficiencies as lord, including what antiquarian Ralph Turner depicts as "disagreeable, even perilous character attributes", like insignificance, resentment, and brutality.

About Author

William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare was an English artist and dramatist, broadly viewed as the best essayist in the English language and one of the world's pre-famous playwrights. His magnetic works comprise 38 plays, 154 pieces, two long story sonnets, and a few other sonnets. Shakespeare was brought up in Stratford-upon-Avon. He was 18 when he got married to Anne Hathaway, with whom he had three kids: Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith. Somewhere in the period between 1585 and 1592, he started to professionally work in London as an entertainer, author, and part proprietor of the playing organization then called 'the Lord Chamberlain's Men', later known as the King's Men'. Very few records on Shakespeare's personal life have been collected by now which has led to significant speculations and research on matters such as his sexuality, strict convictions, and whether the works ascribed to him were composed by others. Shakespeare delivered the greater part of his known work somewhere between 1590 and 1613. He was a highly regarded writer and dramatist in his days. However, his standing didn't ascend to its current statures until the nineteenth century. The Romantics acclaimed Shakespeare as a virtuoso and the legends of the Victorian era adored him. Irish novelist, Bernard Shaw termed the word 'bardolatry' in his honor. In the 20th century, his work was rediscovered by new developments in grant and execution.
