Best Answer

There is no official record of Shakespeare's birth, but there is a record of his baptism on 26th April 1564.

Baptisms were usually performed within a few days of birth so it is possible that he was born on 23 April but the exact date is not known.

His birthday is celebrated on 23rd April, the day on which he died in 1616 and St. George's Day.
