A payment for the kings,
A child of rock who sings,
The sign says you can't do it,
In Spain, you might go through it.

You will find me in a void,
I was coined by Sigmund Freud,
Above you'll find me in each of these,
If three is easy, I'm a breeze.

Are you

the id?

A payment for the kings,

With help from John, quid, qu-id!

A child of rock who sings,

Kid Rock, k-id

The sign says you can't do it,

A sign might say trespassing is forbidden, forb-id-den

In Spain, you might go through it.

Madrid is a city in Spain, Madr-id

You will find me in a void,

The word 'id' is in the word 'void', vo-id

I was coined by Sigmund Freud,'

He invented the concept of the id, the ego, and the superego

Above you'll find me in each of these,

Points out that the answers to the first stanza contain the word 'id'

If three is easy, I'm a breeze.

Might be an id-ego-superego reference? John helped again, 'id' only has two letters.

Title clue:

The village Id-iot

  • $\begingroup$ That's all correct. Kid, Forbid, Madrid, and what (how much?) payment to a king? If three is easy, then... two letters should be even easier. $\endgroup$ – John Jul 12 '16 at 21:08
  • $\begingroup$ I've got nothing on the king payment. Tithe, tax, gold, frankincense, myrrh...if we're going British I could give him quid? $\endgroup$ – Aethon Jul 12 '16 at 21:14

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, I think you could. That's what I was looking for. If you were to say that the term didn't really exist (which I did look up, but found inconclusive) during the middle-ages, or perhaps its value was too large for the common tax-payer, I'd say, well, sorry. But that's what I was looking for! Good job! $\endgroup$ – John Jul 12 '16 at 21:19
  • $\begingroup$ I'm terrible at history, but it's probably safe to say they had quid at some point while having a king, right? Thanks! $\endgroup$ – Aethon Jul 12 '16 at 21:24
