William Shakespeare was a Renaissance English poet, dramatist, and actor who was born in Stratford-upon-Avon in 1564. His birthday is commemorated on April 23, even though it is not the exact date.

This is because the recording of dates of births was not a common practice then, but since we know he was baptized on April 26, 1564, it is certainly presumed he was born just a few days before that. He died on the same date as his presumed birthday which is April 13, 1616.
