A stamp showing William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare was born in 1564 in Stratford-on-Avon, England.

He married a lady called Anne Hathaway.  They had 3 children.


Shakespeare went to London in 1587.  He worked as an actor and writer.  He went back to Stratford in 1597.

He wrote many poems and 35 plays.  Some of his plays are comedies (funny plays) like Twelfth Night.  Others are histories like Richard III and Henry V.  Some are tragedies (sad plays) like Hamlet, Macbeth and King Lear.  In Shakespeare's time women were not allowed to be in plays.  All the parts (men and women) were played by men.

Shakespeare died in 1616 but we can still see his plays in nearly every country in the world today.
