  • Fun Faith Fact!: Shakespeare's religious beliefs are unknown

Despite being one of the greatest poets and play writes of all-time and the writer of renowned plays like Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, and Macbeth, little is known about Shakespeare's private life outside of his marriage to Anne Hathaway. His mother and father were likely Catholic, though it would have been in secret as Catholicism was illegal in England at the time. It is impossible to know more than that!
