Today is William Shakespeare’s birthday! But did you know he also died on this day?

William Shakespeare’s birthday is celebrated on April 23, but did you know that the famed playwright and author also died on this day?  

Due to a lack of records and information surrounding his birth, Shakespeare’s exact date of birth is actually unknown. The reason his birthday is observed on April 23 is because of a record of his church baptism occurring on April 26. It was customary during that time for a baptism of a newborn to take place three days after birth, thus leading historians to believe that today is the day that he was born. 

Shakespeare led quite the interesting life with a complicated marriage and family background to match. Though he faced quite a few challenges, that did not stop him from ultimately becoming the playwright with the most theatrical works performed in history. 

Shakespeare passed away at the early age of 52 of unknown causes. His will fell in line with the unconventional way he lived his life as many were surprised with what he left his daughter and wife.
