Percy Shelley was a 19th-century poet and friend of Dr. Samuel Johnson. He spent time in Mrs. Miggins' coffee shop, together with fellow poets Lord Byron and Samuel Taylor Coleridge. He drew a sword at Mr. Blackadder, when Blackadder gave the impression that Johnson's work had been destroyed.
Shelley is later mentioned by Sally Cheapside, who is in love with him. She describes him as a famous whoopsy.
