The 1679 edition of the play by the same Herringman, (a complete scan of the play) at the J. Willard Marriott Library (The University of Utah). In the same library a lot of other interesting old books.

The Maiden Queen was noteworthy as a vehicle for Nell Gwyn, who played the heroine Florimel. Pepys raved about her performance in his Diary — "so great performance of a comical part was never, I believe, in the world before...." [2 March 1966/67] He returned to see the play eight more times. It was also a special favorite of the King, who reportedly called it "his play."
