In a passage on Busyrane ("busy rana" [frog]) in his _Praise in The Faerie
Queene_ Thomas Cain considers the topicality of the final episode of the 1590
installment of the poem.  He writes:  "The busy-frog etymology alludes...to the
queen's proposed French marriage of a decade earlier. According to her habit of
nicknaming courtiers, she had dubbed Alencon her "Grenouille" (frog).  Her
jewels at the time included a gold flower supporting a frog with Alencon's
physiognomy.  The conceit of the Frog Prince who did a-wooing go caught on
sufficiently for Drake at his knighting to present the queen with a timely frog
of diamonds.  The Stationer's licensing of "A moste Strange weddinge of the
frogge and the mowse" on 21 November 1580 shows that the negotiations had
imbued this ancient rhyme with a new pertinence (it should be remembered that
the frog is not successful)" (103).
