The band was formed in 1988 by school friends in Saint Petersburg around founder members Mikhail Gorshok Gorshenev (Михаил Горшок Горшенёв), Alexandr Balu Balunov (Александр Балу Балунов) and Alexandr Lieutenant Shchigoliev (Александр Поручик Щиголев). Singer Andrei Kniaz Kniazev (Андрей Князь Князев) joined the band in 1990 and guitarist Yakov Tsvirkunov (Яков Цвиркунов) in 1997. The band's name, which means The King and the Jester, was adopted in 1992, its previous name was Bureau (Контора).

Korol' i Shut's lyrics are written by Kniazev and feature horror stories and folk tales about pirates, trolls, ghosts and vampires, as well as Slavic mythology. Many of their songs, despite their intimidating appearance and style, are actually humorous, sarcastic or ironic (dark humor). The band members wear Misfits-inspired horror make-up onstage.

The band recorded for the first time in 1991 in a semi-professional studio. It was programmed on the radio soon after and began to tour around Saint Petersburg's clubs. They began rehearsing in the club Tamtam in which started performing Chimera and Tequilajazzz. From 1993, it started touring also in Moscow.

The first official album was 1996's Kamnem po golove (Камнем по голове – Stone To The Head) which was distributed by "Melodiya". Many other albums were released since then. The first music video was released in 1998 for the song Yeli miaso mujiki (Ели мясо мужики -- Men Were Eating Meat).

The band's lead singer Mikhail Gorsheniov died of heart failure at the night from 18 to 19 July 2013. After a farewell tour during the fall and winter of 2013, Korol i Shut officially broke up in January 2014. Surviving members have founded a new band named 'Severny Flot'.

However, due to the numerous requests of the fans, the former band members decided to keep the name of the band, 'Korol i Shut' exclusively for the release of the unfinished zong-opera "TODD".
