When someone says the name “Humpty Dumpty,” most people picture a large egg with a face wearing a waistcoat, but people are shocked to find out he wasn’t an egg. The nursery rhyme never says he was an egg; that idea comes from an illustration in “Through The Looking Glass” by Lewis Carroll.

If he wasn’t an egg, what was he? No one knows for sure, but the two leading theories are that the nursery rhyme is talking about King Richard III falling off a horse named “Wall,” or that “Humpty Dumpty” was a cannon used in the English Civil War.
