When was William Shakespeare born and where?

William Shakespeare was born on or just before April 23, 1564. Historians believe he was born on the same day he had died (",Encyclopedia of World Biography" 142). Historians don't know his exact birthday but have suspected he died around the same time he turned 52. Shakespeare was born in the small town of Stratford. The Stratford-upon-Avion was very important in the 16th century because it was the church that Shakespeare was baptized and was a big holy Trinity church ("Poets: American and British").
