Though it be uncertain whether this Enterlude was Shakespeare's King Henry VIII. or not, yet we have never heard of any other play professedly written on the fame subject; and have reason to think that our author's performance was produced during the reign of queen Elizabeth, on account of the compliment paid to her at the conclusion of it.
Nathaniel Butter was the publisher of Shakespeare's King Lear. The particular cautions shown concerning the licence to print the present dramatic piece, might lead us to fufpect it to have been Shakespeare's, and that the fagacious Company of Stationers were of opinion that this compliment to the memory of the queen, might not prove very plealing to her inglorious fucceffor.
