Interesting, but I remember reading that John was cited for missing
church services. Many biographers have speculated that this was perhaps
not religious truancy, but an attempt to evade debt collectors who
could, and many times did, seek debtors at church. If anyone else has
more facts at their disposal, it might help Sophie a great deal.

I've always thought the mystery of John's final years and fall from
power could possibly have significant bearing on Shakespeare's works.
Especially since John died and Hamlet was completed in 1601.

Sophie, now I'm intrigued as to what you're researching. :)
