John Fletcher was an immensely popular and prolific playwright who wrote three plays jointly with Shakespeare: Cardenio (now lost), The Famous History of the Life of King Henry VIII and The Two Noble Kinsmen. He is particularly known, however, for his many collaborations with Francis Beaumont (1584-1616), including Philaster (c.1609), The Maid's Tragedy (c.1610) and A King and No King (c.1611).
