I just saw this whilst reading about 'The Merry Wives of Windsor'

>The Garter theory is only speculation, but it is corroborated by a story first recorded by John Dennis in 1702: that Shakespeare was commanded to write the play by Queen Elizabeth, who wanted to see Falstaff in love.

Bishi fangirls! even in the Tudor period. So I guess this makes this play a doujin.
