William Shakespeare (also known as the "Bard of Avon") was an English poet and playwright. He was born in 1564 although the exact date is not known for sure. It is known that he was baptized on April 26th. He lived in Stratford-upon-Avon and it is believed that he grew up on Henley Street where his father, John Shakespeare, lived. His father was believed to be a town official and a businessman. Most scholars agree that Shakespeare was educated at Kings New School that was in Stratford. Here he would have had an intensive education that included Latin grammar and classics.
