    King John is normally regarded as one of Shakespeares earliest and weakest history plays. The plot mainly concerns the kings conflict with France over his legitimacy, since John inherited the throne from his brother, Richard the Lionheart, even /5. Shakespeare's unique status has made critics reluctant to acknowledge the extent to which some of his plays are the outcome of adaptation. In Shakespeare's Stage Traffic Janet Clare re-situates Shakespeare's dramaturgy within the flourishing and competitive theatrical trade of the late sixteenth and early seventeenth by: 4.

    His portrait of John is drawn from the histories of Holinshed, Halle, and Foxe, but owes equally as much to an anonymously written play titled The Troublesome Raigne of John King of England (printed in ). Both works present John as a king with serious flaws; Shakespeare presents a more balanced view of the character in comparison. Sometimes, he rewrote earlier plays, as we think was the case with Hamlet (the missing play is called the Ur-Hamlet) and as he did with King John, which he reworked from an anonymous play called The Troublesome Raigne of John, King of England; King Lear is based on The Chronicle History of King Leir.

    Based on the earlier anonymous play The Troublesome Raigne of King John published in and secondarily, on the edition of Holinshed's Chronicles, William Shakespeare's The Life and Death of King John (King John) is not an objective historical statement but a poetic comment on the monarchy and the moral issues it confronts.

King John is Shakespeare’s version of medieval realpolitik. Everyone, from king to queen to cardinal, is corrupt and interested more in power and conquest than in any more noble aim.
