William Shakespeare is said to be born on April 23, 1564, although his actual birthday is not known, and was baptized at the holy Trinity Church in Stratford-upon-Avon on April 26, 1564. William Shakespeare was the third child of John and Mary Arden Shakespeare with two older sisters and three younger brothers. Although much is not known about his education, scholars believe that Shakespeare went to school in King's New School, in Stratford, which taught the basics of literature. On November 28, 1582, when Shakespeare was 18, he got married to a 26 year old women, Anne Hathaway, in Worcester. After about six months of marriage, on May 26, 1583, Anne Shakespeare gave birth to their first child, a daughter by the name of Susanna.
No one is for sure when Shakespeare was born. His birth date is estimated by the day he was baptized. Since his baptism date was April 26, 1564, William is believed to have been born on April 23, 1564. His birth place was Stratford-upon-Avon where he attended Holy Trinity Church (William Shakespeare bio).
