Examples of "troylus"
There are earlier elements that contributed to the tale. In the medieval courtly romance "Perceforest" (published in 1528), a princess named Zellandine falls in love with a man named Troylus. Her father sends him to perform tasks to prove himself worthy of her, and while he is gone, Zellandine falls into an enchanted sleep. Troylus finds her and impregnates her in her sleep; when their child is born, he draws from her finger the flax that caused her sleep. She realizes from the ring he left her that the father was Troylus, who later returns to marry her.
The Quarto edition labels it a history play with the title "The Famous Historie of Troylus and Cresseid", but the First Folio classed it with the tragedies, under the title "The Tragedie of Troylus and Cressida". The confusion is compounded by the fact that in the original pressing of the First Folio, the play's pages are unnumbered, the title is not included in the Table of Contents, and it appears to have been squeezed between the histories and the tragedies. Based on this evidence, scholars believe it was a very late addition to the Folio, and therefore may have been added wherever there was room.

The poem, which uses ‘rhyme royal’ (known in Scotland as ‘Troylus verse’), has been attributed to Christian Boswell’s poet-daughter Elizabeth Melville on biographical and stylistic grounds. The original literary inspiration may have come from an inscription on the wall of Aberdour Kirk on the Fife coast, quite close to Balmuto Castle and to another Melville family seat, Rossend Castle in Burntisland (home of Elizabeth Melville's uncle Sir Robert of Murdocairnie, and then his son, Sir Robert of Burntisland):
Allot also published other dramatic texts of his era, including Philip Massinger's "The Roman Actor" (1629) and "The Maid of Honour" (1632), and Aurelian Townshend's 1631 Court masque "Albion's Triumph." He published volumes of work by Sir Thomas Overbury, George Wither, James Mabbe, and Thomas Randolph. He issued a number of the chivalric romances that were immensely popular in his era. Allot also served as the London retail outlet for books printed at the press of Oxford University. In another direction, Allot bought and sold books with the Cambridge bookseller Troylus Atkinson, who served the town's university community.
The word cheer originally meant face, countenance, or expression, and came through Old French into Middle English in the 13th century from Low Latin "cara", head; this is generally referred to the Greek καρα;. "Cara" is used by the 6th-century poet Flavius Cresconius Corippus, "Postquam venere verendam Caesilris ante caram" ("In Laud em Justini Minoris"). Cheer was at first qualified with epithets, both of joy and gladness and of sorrow; compare She thanked Dyomede for ale ... his gode chere (Chaucer, "Troylus") with If they sing ... tis with so dull a cheere (Shakespeare, "Sonnets", xcvii.). An early transference in meaning was to hospitality or entertainment, and hence to food and drink, good cheer. The sense of a shout of encouragement or applause is a late use. Defoe ("Captain Singleton") speaks of it as a sailor's word, and the meaning does not appear in Johnson.
