Relatively little is known about William Shakespeare's personal life. He was born in Stratford-upon-Avon in England, which was a market town. He also died there.

William Shakespeare married his wife, Anne Hathaway, and lived with her in Stratford-upon-Avon. Together, they raised their children in the river town. He lived there for many years.

When Shakespeare became more successful in his career as a playwright and actor, he began staying in London. Eventually, he divided his time between his work in London and his family in Stratford-upon-Avon. It was convenient for Shakespeare to be in London often for work purposes. In London, he moved several times and rented rooms. In Stratford-upon-Avon, he built a large house for his family. After he semi-retired, Shakespeare spent most of his time in Stratford-upon-Avon until his death.
