William Shakespeare, English writer, stage actor and director, is generally regarded as the greatest writer of the English language and the most famous and most performed playwrights in the world.

William Shakespeare was born in the small town of Stratford -on-Avon in 1564, in the county of Warwickshire ( at a time when Michelangelo died in Rome ), as the third and the oldest male child of eight children. He was baptized on April 26, 1564, and is thought to be born April 23, 1564. His father was John Shakespeare, a prominent and wealthy citizen, merchant - craftsman, a member of the Municipal Council
There are assumptions that Shakespeare left the school in 1578 when his father's business went up, and the presence of fourteen year old son in the home become necessary. From that time until his 18th year, on it there are no written records. It was not until the 18th of September 1582 there is a document that talks about the marriage of William Shakespeare with Ann Hathaway from the nearby hamlet Shotery, and that was eight years older than him. Married probably was not happy, because he often wrote against early marriages. In 1583 she bore him a daughter, Susan, and in 1585 the twins - daughter Judith and son Hamnet. Then again in 1592 to about Shakespeare knows nothing, and this is the first time mentioned as an actor and playwright. In 1596 dies his son Hamnet. Next year is the Stantfordu bought the estate called New Place and became co-owner of the Globe theater. Shortly afterwards, in 1601, Shakespeare 's father dies
