 Author John Aubrey's Brief Lives recounts of Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford that: 

"The Earle of Oxford, making his low obeisance to Queen Elizabeth, happened to let a Fart, at which he was so abashed and ashamed that he went to Travell, 7 yeares. Upon his return home, the Queen greeted him, reportedly saying "My Lord, I had forgot the Fart."
