There is an absurd tradition that this familiar old ballad romance was written by a nobleman, who had the misfortune to lose his heart for Queen (then Princess) Victoria, and who poured forth the suicidal song when she received the diadem on her brow.
The music was arranged by Wellington Guernsey, who is the author of some charm­ing songs, set by various composers.
