William Shakespeare was an English playwright, actor and poet also known as the “Bard of Avon” and often called England’s national poet. He was a respected man of the arts who wrote plays and acted in some in the late 16th and early 17th centuries, but he wasn’t recognized as a dramatic genius until the 19th century.
It is believed Shakespeare was born on or near April 23, 1564, and this is the date scholars acknowledge as his birthday although there are no records except that he was baptized Holy Trinity Church in Stratford-upon-Avon on April 26, 1564.
Shakespeare was the third child of John Shakespeare, a leather merchant, and Mary Arden, a local landed heiress. Shakespeare had two older sisters, Joan and Judith, and three younger brothers, Gilbert, Richard and Edmund.
Very few records exist of Shakespeare’s childhood, and virtually none regarding his education. Scholars have surmised that he most likely attended the King’s New School, in Stratford, which taught reading, writing and the classics. But this uncertainty regarding his education has led some to raise questions about the authorship of his work and even about whether or not Shakespeare ever existed.
