The Birthdate of Shakespeare is not known, he was baptised on 26th April 1564. Hamnet and Judith was twins, tragedy struck and at the age of 11 Hamnet died.

  8. ‘To Be Or Not To Be…That Is The Question’ A line from Shakespeare’s tragedy, HAMLET. Another well known quote is from his very famous play, ROMEO AND JULIET…’Romeo, Romeo, Wherefore Art Thou Romeo?’ William Shakespeare was born in 1564, his actual date of birth is unknown, but he was baptised on 26th April in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, England. His parents were John and Mary Shakespeare. He was the third child of eight children.

    William married his wife, Anne Hathaway at the age of 18, she was 26. They had three children, Susanna and twins Hamnet and Judith. Sadly at the age of 11, Hamnet died of unknown causes.

    Shakespeare is regarded as the greatest writer in the English language. He was an English poet and playwright and often called England’s National Poet. He wrote 38 plays, 154 sonnets, 2 long narrative poems and a few other verses.

    At the age of 49, William retired to Stratford. He died on 23rd April 1616 and was buried in the chancel (space around the altar) of The Holy Trinity Church two days after his death. William Shakespeare has been commemorated in many statues and memorials around the world.

  25. Well done, Trinity! You have wrote 4 paragraphs, filled with useful infomation. It is great piece of work because… (Two stars)
    You have presented your work in paragraphs. You have a nice start to your work.

    Your wish…
    At the end of your 1st paragraph, you have wrote: ‘William Shakespeare was born in 1564, his actual date of birth is unknown, but he was baptised on 26th April in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, England.’ I think you should of typed that in the last paragraph.
    Also, in the 1st paragraph you have wrote:’His parents were John and Mary Shakespeare. He was the third child of eight children.’ I think that would have fitted in the 2nd paragraph. But, other than that… I LOVE YOUR WORK!!!

  26. William Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire and was baptised a few days later on 26 April 1564.
    Family: His father, John Shakespeare, was a glove maker and wool merchant and his mother, Mary Arden. William got married at the age of 18 to Anne Hathaway, the daughter of a local farmer, on November 28, 1582. She was eight years older than him and their first child, Susanna, was born six months after their wedding. Two years later, the couple had twins, Hamnet and Judith, but their son died when he was 11 years old.
    Final years: Shakespeare spent the last five years of his life in New Place in Stratford. He died on 23 April 1616 at the age of 52 and was buried in Holy Trinity Church in Stratford.

    Quotes: Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none. Romeo o Romeo, wherefore thou art Romeo? If music be the food, play on. To be, or not to be: that is the question. The wheel is come full circle. God has given you one face, and you make yourself another. Listen to many, speak to a few. Better a witty fool than a foolish wit.
    Suspicion always haunts the guilty mind. It is a wise father that knows his child. The course of true love never did run smooth.”
    There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so. Come, gentlemen, I hope we drink down all unkindness. Better three hours too soon than a minute too late. No legacy is so rich as honest. Women may fall when they no strength in men. Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs. An overflow of good converts to bad. The empty vessel makes the loudest sound. We know what we are, but know not what we may be. False face must hide what the false heart doth know.
    Love sought is good, but given unsought, is better.

  27. By the pricking of the thumbs, :)

    To-Morrow and To-Morrow:( :)

    Quotes
    Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.
    If music be the food of love, play on.
    Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once.

    The course of true love never did run smooth.

  30. William Shakespeare was born Stratford upon Avon.He had 3 children named Susanna hall, Hamnet Shakespeare and Judith Quiney. He was born on 26 April and he died on April 23 1616.

  31. Olivia Beckwith says: I was really
    Scared of the three witches. I was
    Jealous about you all going to
    the RSC to act out Macbeth I
    really wanted to go and watch you. I was really scared when Banquo turned into a ghost and that lady Macbeth went mad !…

  32. SHAKESPEARE

    Was a famous writer and many of his 38 plays are known world-wide.

    The Tudor style town of Stratford Upon Avon is where Shakespeare was born and lived.
    I have a photo of myself and Brandon standing outside his house, this is now a museum depicting his work.

    MACBETH

    A very brave Scottish general who won many battles.

    Met three witches also known as the weird sisters, they believed in a prophecy that one day he would become king.

    Lady Macbeth encouraged her husband to murder King Duncan so that he would then rule over Scotland.

    During his reign he suffered with guilt and paranoia, this resulted in him becoming even more of a bad person. He committed more murders to try and help protect him from suspicion.

    Eventually Macbeth’s life came to an end in the hands of Macduff who kills and beheads him.

  33. Qoutes
    all the world is a stage.
    the world is empty and the devils are here.
    Its not in the stars to hold are destiny but in the stars.

    4.a winters tale.
    5.henry the vIII with lots of other parts to see.
    And they are the five plays i wrote but there are 38 to see. :)

  35. Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

    A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.

    Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.

    If you prick us do we not bleed? If you tickle us do we not laugh? If you poison us do we not die? And if you wrong us shall we not revenge?
