William Shakespeare

Person  Male  Born 23/4/1564  Died 23/4/1616

Born and died in Stratford-upon-Avon. His birth date is often given as the 23rd, the same date as his death, but all that is actually known is that he was baptised 3 days later, on the 26th. Even his date of death seems a little uncertain. The 23rd also happens to be St George's Day, for the patron saint of England. Neat.
