Did Shakespeare believe that King James killed his son? There is no evidence to suggest it, but I do think that Shakespeare knew King James well enough to believe that he was capable of doing such a thing. If King Lear is any indication, Shakespeare had a dim view of King James as a father.
But his plays continued to play in London, and fortunately they have survived to remind us of what he witnessed.
