About Shakespeare

Shakespeare was born in 1564 in a small village in Warwickshire, England. He married early, settling down with Anne Hathaway when he was just 18 years old. He worked as an actor and also owned some shares in a theatre company named Lord Chamberlain’s Men. Later, the name of this company would be changed to Kings Men. After about 20 years in theatre, Shakespeare retired and moved to a little village called Stratford. This is where he died in 1616. There is little information about Shakespeare’s private life which has generated a lot of speculation about many aspects of his life.

Popular Facts about Shakespeare

  • William Shakespeare married an older woman, something that was not very common at the time.

Indeed, it is said that the marriage was quickly arranged to cover up this fact.
  • For one of the most prolific writers in history, Shakespeare was surrounded by a significant amount of illiteracy. His parents are believed to have been illiterate and the same is thought to have been true for Shakespeare’s children as well
  • Between 1585 and 1592, there is a gap in the history books regarding the life of Shakespeare. This is because historians are not sure what Shakespeare was up to during this period.

This period of Shakespeare’s life is often referred to as ‘The Lost Years.’
