Humpty Dumpty is a famous character in an English nursery rhyme. The character represents an egg. This kid’s poem was once used to be a riddle, and the egg was probably the riddle’s answer. Humpty Dumpty dates back to the early 19th century. Also, in the 17th century, Humpty Dumpty was the name of a kind of brandy, and the word was used to describe a short and clumsy person.
It was first published as a riddle in Gammer Gurton’s Garland in 1810. Earlier in 1803, it was found in a manuscript of Mother Goose’s Melody.
(First Printed- Original Lyrics)
Humpty Dumpty sate [sic] on a wall,
Humpti Dumpti [sic] had a great fall;
Threescore men and threescore more,
Cannot place Humpty dumpty as he was before
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.
