William Shakespeare, born April 23, 1564 in a small market town of Stratford-upon-Avon. He's the third out of eight. William was baptized at the Holy Trinity, the parish church in Stratford, records his baptism on April 26. He baptized about three days after birth. Mr. Shakespeare at about the age of 7, probably attended the Stratford grammar school.

His wife is Anne Hathaway married November 27, 1582 at the age of 18 while she was 26. He is to be a father of three, Susanna, in may 1583, later on twines Judith and Hamnet early in 1585. The twins were named after two very close friends. Eleven years later Hamnet died of a deadly disease. Hamnet was buried in Stratford on August 11, 1596 .

William started his theatre career in London around 1592. He began association with one of the city’s repertory theater companies. What is certain is that by 1594 Shakespeare was a sharer in the Lord Chamberlain’s Men. As a sharer, he was a stockholder in the company and entitled to a share in the company’s profits. The Lord Chamberlain’s Men were one of the most popular companies in London. Most playwrights were free-lancers who were paid a one-time fee for their plays and usually worked for several companies. After 1594, Shakespeare maintained a relationship with a single company. Shakespeare’s poems and plays show a love of nature and rural life. This display undoubtedly reflects his childhood experiences and his love of the Stratford countryside. From 1594 to 1608, he was fully involved in the London theater world.
