Warwickshire is a Heart of England county.
It features the city of Stratford-upon-Avon, where William Shakespeare
was born in 1564 and died in 1616. Stratford is filled with monuments
to The Bard, but none of the town's 21,000 residents has been able
to dig up dirt on him, since history's most renowned playwright
left behind no personal papers of any kind. Shakespeare didn’t
have to look far for ideas, either. The subject of one of his plays,
Richard III, was slain in nearby Market Bosworth. That historically
preserved town radiates out from a central square where market has
been held each Wednesday since the year 1285.
Warwickshire is also home to a world famous medieval castle. Kenilworth
Castle is linked to the legend of King Arthur. Pomp and circumstance
surrounding a 16th century visit by Queen Elizabeth I to Kenilworth
is thought to have inspired scenes in “A Midsummer Night’s
Dream,” as a certain 11-year-old Billy was most likely on
hand to witness the event.
