John Keats died without legitimate progeny. During his tour through the Germanies in 1800, however, he met a buxom young lady named Gretchen in a Bierstubbe in Wien-am-Rhine. One night, after boozing with "Boozy" Hawkes and other disreputables, they swapped: he gave her a tax deduction and she gave him a social disease. Wilhelm Keats was born some months after John left, and Wilhelm, jr. was born some years after that.
