Shakespeare was a 16th century Englishman born in 1564 and died on his birthday in 1616. He lived (and is buried) in Stratford on Avon in England; his parents were John and Mary. He lived at a time when there was little conflict in England (especially since the defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1587 took care of foreign conflicts and the beheading of Mary, Queen of Scots in 1588 took care of much civil unrest), so he had time to develop his skill. He went to the local grammar school and only had that education. He went to London at the age of 18 and did not return to Stratford until about 1611 where he died.
