Will Shaksper is supposed to have been born on the 23rd April, 1564.
He is supposed to have died on the same day of the same month--namely, on the 23rd April, 1616.
Miguel Cervantes(another of Francis Bacon's masks) is also supposed to have died on the 23rd April 1616--the same day, month and year as Will Shaksper. Are these coicidences? It appears likely that Francis Bacon (who was an inveterate jester) purposely arranged the alleged dates of the deaths of Shaksper and Cervantes in order to suggest an enquiry into the works of these two supposed authors.
