The Black Death and Bubonic Plague in Elizabethan London

 

This terrible disease was an important factor and had major consequences on the life and family of William Shakespeare. He lost brothers and sisters as well as close friends and fellow actors to the disease. The Elizabethan era and the life of people were dictated by rules to prevent the spread of any such virus. People were required to obtain permission before they could travel as just one of the consequences of the deadly plague! The theaters were often closed due to the pestilence - most of the actors would then leave London for the comparative safety of the countryside.
