Since a few people have mentioned this meme, and it sounded pretty interesting, I decided to give it a go.

Out of the many Events, Births and Deaths that appear to have happened on the day of my birth in ages past I've decided these interested me the most:

Events

215 BC - A temple is built on the Capitoline Hill dedicated to Venus Erycina to commemorate the Roman defeat at Lake Trasimene.

1597 - Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor is first performed, with Queen Elizabeth I of England in attendance.

1956 - Elvis Presley makes his first appearance in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Births

1564 - William Shakespeare, English poet and playwright [uncertain] (d. 1616)

1960 - Valerie Bertinelli, American actress (she must be my long lost twin...)

Deaths

1616 - William Shakespeare, English writer and actor (b. 1564) Died on his birthday - that sucks.

Your birthday seems to have unfinished buisness with Shakespeare ;-)

Sorry it took so long to respond. You have a point, however, regarding Shakespeare... perhaps it's simply the bard in me and anyone else born on this day.
