Author

William Shakespeare (1564?—23 April, 1616) was a Muggle author who wrote Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night's Dream. He lived during Elizabethan times in southern England, when Muggles as a whole were prejudiced against wizards and witches and often organised massive witchhunts, partly inspired by regal paranoia.

Behind the scenes
