Born: April 23, 1564 (probably… no one is sure)
Died: April 23, 1616
The bane of every high school English student, Shakespeare couldn’t have written a better circle of life for himself. There’s a lot of debate over his exact date of birth, and also the circumstances of his death are a little hazy too.
What they do know, was that he was partying hard with some of his contemporaries, and contracted a fever from the drink and passed away.
