William Shakespeare was born in 1564 at Stratford-on-Avon in England. At the time Elizabeth I had been Queen for six years.

When he left school, William was employed by his father. He married a local girl, Anne Hathaway, when he was eighteen. Three years later he left Stratford and went to London.
Shakespeare’s life was between the year 1585 and 1590. By the end of 1590 he had joined a group of actors and had started writing plays. During the next twenty years he wrote thirty-two plays. He wrote possibly more plays, which he did not have published or performed.
