Did Shakespeare lose a son?

Hamnet may be a footnote in history but he was in fact William Shakespeare's only son. He died at just 11 years old – largely abandoned by his famous father, who was making his name in London – in 1596.

How did Shakespeare die?

It's been speculated that he died of syphilis or was even murdered. Helen explores the theory that comes from a diary written by a Stratford Vicar 50 years after Shakespeare's death. It tells of Shakespeare going out drinking with his writing friends and then dying of a fever shortly afterward.

Life. Little is known about Hamnet. The twins were probably named after Hamnet Sadler, a baker, who witnessed Shakespeare's will, and his wife, Judith. According to the record of his baptism on 23 March 1560 in the Register of Solihull, he was christened "Hamlette Sadler".

Did Shakespeare have any grandchildren?

William Shakespeare and his wife Anne had three children. The eldest, Susanna, was baptised on 26 May 1583. They also had twins, Judith and Hamnet, baptised on 2 February 1585. Shakespeare had four grandchildren who all died without heirs, so there are no direct descendants of his line today.

Can Anne Hathaway read?

Considering that she could not read and write it all had to be done in her head. Anne had three children, fewer than most of her neighbours would have had, but even then, raising them was a huge job. She had to do everything to keep them alive and well at a time when child mortality was common.

What personal tragedy did Shakespeare endure as a parent?

The greatest tragedy that William Shakespeare endured as a parent was the death of his only son Hamnet at the age of eleven. Other than this, very little is known about young Hamnet's short life. It is likely that he died of the bubonic plague as there were many outbreaks of this deadly disease at the time.
