When did Anne and Shakespeare meet?
"The hamlet of Shottery was only a mile from the town of Stratford where William Shakespeare lived with his family. Anne Hathaway would have often visited the town and would have therefore had the opportunity to meet William Shakespeare. At this time Anne would have been 26 and William 18. A considerable age difference, with William Shakespeare still under the age of consent (21). It is apparent that Anne Hathaway became pregnant prior to marriage which would have no doubt caused a scandal for both of the families. Not an auspicious start for a marriage or a perfect choice of a wife for the son of an ambitious family. William Shakespeare's father John, in particular, would not have been pleased at the detrimental effect that the gossip would have had on his own social standing in Stratford. A hasty affair would have been arranged."

Henry and Anne Boleyn met at court, once before his affair with her sister (Mary) and again after Henry had discarded Mary. Anne Boleyn's family had sent to her to France after her first meeting with the King, which did not go well, however they recalled her to England after Mary's failure to keep t…he King's attentions. The Boleyn family, like many at the time, were always trying to gain power and one of the ways to do this was to use their daughters to engratiate the Henry with their family. This was a good stradegy, as Henry was known for giving titles, lands and fortunes to the families of his mistresses. (MORE)
There is no record of Shakespeare having any children other than the three he had with Anne Hathaway.
Shakespeare's bequest . William Shakespeare famously bequeathed his "second best bed" to his wife, Anne Hathaway.. Students of the Bard have argued about whether this was an insult or a compliment.. The "second best bed" might have been their marital bed - the best bed being reserved for house gu…ests - and would be a strange token of his love.. (MORE)
Yes, they had three children. Their eldest daughter was named Susanna and their twins were called Judith and Hamnet. 3. Susanna & the twins; Hamnet and Judith.
They got married in Stratford upon Avon on November 28th 1582. Well, the ceremony may have taken place at Temple Grafton or Shottery instead, we aren't sure. As for the date, the licence issued on November 27th. They could have been married the next day, but it is not clear.

A consider…able age difference, We don't know exactly. It wasn't a large community and she didn't live that far away from Stratford. There were, no doubt, many occasions on which young people could meet. (MORE)
Because he wanted a wife and children, and he needed a woman to take care of them.
Henry met Anne of Cleve's by making one of his servants to invite her down to England by a letter but in the end when Henry met Anne in real life he hated her and called her horrible names
We'll never know for sure. One man claimed or may have claimed to be Shakespeare's illegitimate son, although he may have meant godson or even inspiration. If that were true then this would be a case of an extramarital affair. It has also been suggested that his death may have been the result of tre…atment for syphilis which he picked up from prostitutes. Working where he did, and being as far from home as he was, he may well have been involved with prostitutes, but we have no proof. (MORE)
They almost certainly met as he both wrote and performed plays for her at her palace. There is however no record of a meeting and it is possible she did not consider meeting with the entertainment. So the answer is unknown.
Yes, shortly after November 27, 1582, when the licence issued. Yes, Shakespeare's wife's name was Anne Hathaway.
After Jane Seymour, King Henry VIII wanted to find a new wife fast and so he sent his artists to find him a new wife.. they painted Anne of Cleves beautifully when in fact she wasn't that pretty, and King Henry married her without actually meeting her! Hope I helped...
William Shakespeare was 18 when he married Anne Hathaway who wasalready pregnant. She was 26 years old. It appeared to be a shotgun wedding and many speculate that he wanted to distance himselffrom Anne because he didn't want to marry her.
After 1597 she lived in New Place, the house Shakespeare bought for her to live in.
We do not know when Shakespeare left Stratford to go to London, exactly. It was sometime between 1585 and 1592. He was not so much leaving Anne as looking for a steady job. With three kids he needed one, and there wasn't much in Stratford.
She was 26. Shakespeare was 18. They were married in November 1582, while she was pregnant with their first child, Susanna. They also later had twins, Hamnet and Judith. :) .
If "Shakespeare" was the Earl of Oxford, yes, indeed they met -- around 1572, when Oxford was 22 and both were at the Court of Elizabeth. However satisfying that result may be, the real William Shakespeare is unlikely to have met Byrd, who moved to a small town in Essex at about the same time as Sha…kespeare's career was starting to gain momentum in 1594. (MORE)
In Anne Hathaway's Cottage, Stratford upon Avon, Warwickshire, England. Although Shakespeare spent a good deal of time in London without Anne.
Nobody knows. Their parents did know each other but we have no idea how they met.
Anne Hathaway was 26 when she married William Shakespeare. She was 67 when she died.
Nobody knows this, although some people try to guess or make up stories about it. What we know for sure is that they met somewhere probably not far from Stratford (since she was from the nearby settlement of Shottery) between 1564 and September of 1582.
Their marriage licence was issued on November 27, 1582. They must have been married shortly thereafter.
He got her pregnant. That suggests that he was at least somewhat attracted to her. They stayed married until Shakespeare died, in their house in Stratford where they lived together. That suggests that he continued to care for her. Apart from that, though, Shakespeare never recorded what he thought a…bout anything, least of all his family, so it is anyone's guess. (MORE)
Yes, he was. So not to be confused, he was married to a much older Anne Hathaway than the one we know today.
It is said that William Shakespeare and Anne got married at Temple Grafton, which was close-by Stratford.
Shakespeare married Ann Hathaway. She was about eight years older than him. They both lived in the same area. Shakespeare lived in the town of Stratford On Avon and Ann lived in the village of Shottery, about a mile from Stratford. We don't know how or when they met exactly but it was probably in or… around Stratford. They were married in November, 1582. Shakespeare is supposed to have written is Sonnet 145 about Ann. (MORE)
She is, sometimes. For some reason, many people refer to her by her maiden name. Since nowadays that name might cause confusion with the modern actress, she may be called Anne Shakespeare more often.
November, 1582. They got the marriage licence on November 27, but the exact date of the wedding is not known.
Nobody knows. They grew up not too far from each other, so church? a wedding? the village fair? some other kind of celebration? Nobody knows.
She was carrying his child, which suggests that she probably had warm feelings for him.
Shortly after November 27, 1582 when the licence issued. There is no record of the actual date of the wedding, but theirmarriage licence was issued on 27th November 1582, when he was 18years old and she was 26. Their first child, Susanna was born sixmonths later.
We don't know where they met since nobody kept records of that sort of thing. Anne was 26, and he was only 18. We assume that they married due to the pregnancy.
After the death of his third wife, Jane Seymour, Henry VIII (1491 - 1547) was eventually persuaded to marry again, but this fourth wife, Anne of Cleves (1515 - 1557) was chosen via a portrait Henry had commissioned from Hans Holbein, and when he saw her in the flesh, on New Years Day 1540. He was ex…tremely unhappy with her appearance (apparently he called her "the Flanders Mare"). Although he went ahead and married Anne on 6 January 1540, Henry refused to consummate the marriage, so eventually this was annulled nearly 5 months later. But at least Anne of Cleves was "paid off" and did not lose her head. She received a generous divorce settlement and remained on good terms with the king. Anne died in 1557, with declining health. (MORE)
No, Shakespeare was married to Anne Hathaway up to the date of his death. She was his first and only wife.
We don't know exactly, but sometime before the end of August 1582 when Susanna was conceived.
Oh, yes, almost certainly. The Lord Chamberlain's Men (of which Shakespeare was a leading member) played at one of Henslowe's theatres (probably Newington Butts) for a year. It is unlikely that Henslowe never showed up at the theatre or theatrical social gatherings during that time.
She didn't meet Peter in the Diary. She had known Peter for awhile as the son of her parents friends the Van Pels (Van Damms). She had not much noticed him, though.
Miep was originally Otto's product tester and head of the complaint ("customer service") department. Otto soon made her secretary. He liked and respected the industrious young woman, and her boy friend Jan Gies. Soon, Otto was inviting them for dinner at his home, where they got to know the whole fa…mily. Miep and Jan were like "family" before the Franks ever went into hiding. (MORE)
She was pregnant and apparently he was the father. This and their subsequent life both together and apart suggests that she actually cared for him very much.
You have to contact her on face book then maybe one day you will meet up x
To find work. There is no record of Shakespeare having established himself in any trade in Stratford. Life must have been lean for his little family. He hoped he could provide better for them in London. And he did.
Shakespeare died in 1616. Frost was born in 1874. You can probably figure out the answer from those two facts.
If you want to meet China Anne McClain you should go on ancestry.com and search her family tree and track down her cousins or you can enter a contest or create one or become famous.
Yes! They were called Hamnet and Judith and were born in 1585. The Anne Hathaway in question was Shakespeare's wife not the modern actress.
He certainly met other people in the theatrical community of his time, people like Christopher Marlowe and Ben Jonson. Other than them we don't know. Shakespeare did not keep a diary, and nobody else thought he was significant enough at the time to write him up in their diaries.
No. They were married until his death. Actually the evidence tends to suggest that there was no estrangement between them although they lived in different places for most of their married life.
Apart from being both in the volume S in an encyclopedia, they were never in the same place at the same time.
Not long. Their daughter Susanna was born around the 23rd of May (baptised on the 26th), which would put her date of conception late in August. Allowing some time for Anne to figure out that she was pregnant, (and they had no testing back then), she couldn't have known much before their wedding, sho…rtly after they got a special licence to marry without reading banns on November 27. The request for the special licence shows that they knew she was three months pregnant and couldn't wait to perform the ceremony. Because of Shakespeare's extreme youth at the time (he was only 18) it is unlikely that they would have planned to marry if she hadn't been expecting a child. (MORE)
There was some urgency to the matter because Anne was alreadypregnant, but there is no reason to suppose that the couple did notintend to marry anyway because they loved each other.
Shakespeare left an his second best bed. Some people have read thatas an insult. Others speculate that that was their wedding bed, orthat it was her bed, inherited from her side of the family whichshe brought to the marriage.
