John Harington was a courtier and author. He became a prominent member of Queen Elizabeth I's court, and was known as her 'saucy Godson'. But because of his poetry and other writings, he fell in and ultimately out of favour with the Queen, as well as with her successor, James I. He is well-known today as the inventor of a forerunner of the modern flush toilet, described in his famous work The Metamorphosis of Ajax which had enjoyed considerable popularity on its publication in 1596.
