A very rich ancestor

Twenty six million and four hundred thirty two thausand pages in the internet mention William Shakespeare, the famous brit born in the little town of Stratford-upon-Avon on 1564.

Poet, thinker and writer, he’s the author of some of the best known romances worldwide – Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet and Macbeth are just a few among his works that have been adapted to theater or film. One of the biggest controversies that mark the biography of this historical character concerns his birthdate. Nobody can say exactly if it was April 20th or 26th and to celebrate his birthday this upcoming month, we’re displaying here Shakespeare’s family tree.

If all his work woul be protected by copyright,  every  single of his descendants would be rich until these days, quite the oposite of Shakespeare himself who had a rather humble life. Maybe you should try to build up your family tree until you reach 1647. It’s possible you won the “lottery” and don’t know yet!
