The Origin of Humpty Dumpty
Humpty Dumpty is an English nursery rhyme dating back to the eighteenth century. To this day, when kids hear this for the first time, they light up with joy. Perhaps they can relate as a clumsy person or they think it’s silly to picture an egg sitting on a wall.
According to the Oxford English Dictionary, Humpty Dumpty is described as “a large egg-shaped character in a popular nursery rhyme”
Like many nursery rhymes, there are many theories behind the meaning of Humpty Dumpty. Some suggest Humpty Dumpty is a reflection of King Richard III of England. He was known to have been humpbacked and defeated at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485.
While it is not clear if Humpty is actually King Charles or simply a nonfictional character that represents easily being broken, he remains the most popular nursery rhyme character!
