Re: Married name is Shakespeare
As Shakespeare's life is in many respects mysterious some stories are told about his origin.
According to a recent story William Shakespeare was a Sicilian who fled from the island because of fis protestant faith. His real name wsa Giovanni CROLLANZA. In Britain his name became Shakespeare. This was done to hide the real identity. An article appeared in the most popular italian paper "Corriere della Sera" about this matter.
