A significant event in history, on Apr. 23, 1597, Shakespeare's Merry Wives of Windsor was performed for Queen Elizabeth I and her subjects. Shakespeare had previously encountered opposition in previous years, with his theatres being closed and actors persecuted. Elizabeth I differed in the acceptance of art and literature in the empire than with previous monarchs, and marked a continuation of the creative genius of William Shakespeare.
