Humpty Dumpty - a cover up?

"...and all the King's horse and all the King's men..."

I'm puzzled why there is no other reference to Humpty Dumpty in myth, story, fable or rhyme.

"Why?" you might ask, there's only one mention of Jack and Jill.

Well, Jack and Jill were nobodies.

Humpty, however, had celebrity! It takes some clout to get the Royal cavalry to one's assistance.

Who was he? What hold over the King? Why is he not mentioned elsewhere?

Blackmail? A secret lover? His dealer?

We should be told.
