Indeed.

First depiction description as an egg was in Lewis Carol's book, "Through the looking glass" wherein there is a chapter about Humpty Dumpty. However the nursery rhyme is quite a bit older.

Ready for this? The original Humpty Dumpty was (drumroll please....)
...a canon.

During the English civil war, at the Siege of Colchester in 1648, "Humpty Dumpty" was a pet-name the soldiers had for a particular canon (maybe it was the biggest one in the fort? It's not entirely clear). The attacking side had their own canons, and one of them destroyed the section of wall upon which "Humpty Dumpty" was mounted, causing it to come crashing down and break beyond the abilities of "all the kings horses and all the king's men" to repair it.
