Bibliography, etc. note: Includes bibliographical references and index. Summary, etc: The disguised ruler motif evolved in the 1580s, emerging from medieval folklore and balladry, Tudor Chronicle history and European tragicomedy and had become a dangerously voyeuristic political entity by the time James assumed the throne.
