(I have already posted the following and it disappeared - don't know why.)

bubbly, if you read my original post you'll see I wasn't asking a question I knew the answer to - that *would* be pointless! Knowing there was no 17th century English King Edward, I was asking if there was a European one who came to England and tried to have his way with English women. Jack's idea of an allegory of James II/VII and England may be nearer the mark - or else it's just a song to sing with no deeper meaning.
