The link Griffin posted is interesting cause they discount it because a King would be doing nothing else all day but giving out F.U.C.K. It certaintly sounds like it has Germanic origins.
The earliest cite in The Oxford English Dictionary dates from 1503. John Ayto, in his Dictionary of Word Origins cites a proper name (probably a joke or parody name) of 'John le Fucker' from 1250, quite possibly proof the word we casually toss about today was being similarly tossed about 750 years ago
