Corona Regia (1615), published under false author's and printer's names, has been infamously known as a porno-political tract, a scandalous satire written against King James I, and the most scathing satire ever written against princes. Among the varyingly subtle and provocative accusations the book levels at James, perhaps for the first time in print, is the unmentionable taboo of homo-eroticism. When the Flemish authorities did not pursue the Brussels printer and the suspected author vigorously enough for the English Crown, the little book nearly became a casus belli. The work is published here for the first time in a vernacular language in its entirety, introduced by a detailed investigation of early attempts to solve the contested question of its authorship.
