Unearthed Shakespeare



400 years have intervened since Shakespeare was amongst the living. How is it possible anyone can sit comfortably and discuss proof of authorship, without fear of offending

the dead let alone the living? Then let us tread lightly and excuse

the slight, in our effort to put wrong, right.

Last Will. and Testament puts forward a compelling and aesthetically powerful depiction of the history and facts surrounding the author.... but what if there was evidence of a true author, one so well hidden from ordinary eyes it would take someone quite extraordinary to see it. Join us on this quest of discovery to find the hidden author behind the mask.
Rejoice, for a life reserved is a life deserved And delight is on face of..... ?
It’s the greatest literary mystery of all time; who wrote the works of Shakespeare? Although the official story of a Stratford merchant writing for the London box office has held sway for centuries, questions over the authorship of the plays and poems have persisted. Mark Twain, Sigmund Freud, Charlie Chaplin and Orson Welles are among the many famous figures who doubt that a grain-dealer from Stratford-Upon-Avon was England’s “Star of Poets”. From Executive Producer ROLAND EMMERICH, DEREK JACOBI leads an impressive cast featuring OSCAR® WINNER VANESSA REDGRAVE and TONY® WINNER MARK RYLANCE on a quest to uncover the truth behind the world’s most elusive author.

The "First Folio" is of major importance to William Shakespeare as it is the first collected edition of Shakespeare's plays. The copper-engraving picture of William Shakespeare is signed Martin Droeshout on the title page of the ‘First Folio’ (1623). It can be confidently attributed to Droeshout. It must be remembered that during Shakespeare's era that only engravings could be used to illustrate such documents, it was not possible to reproduce paintings of portraits. The famous picture engraving, prefixed to the First Folio of Shakespeare plays, is said to contain many strange clues as to the possible authorship of its content - often referred to in the web of intrigue surrounding the mystery of the William Shakespeare as the 'Identity Problem'. A Closer look There are many peculiarities about the engraving, which have strengthened the arguments of the Shakespeare Identity and Authorship Problem. The following comments and speculations have been made by various experts about the engraving. The Head The head is out of all proportion with the body. There is a peculiar line running from the ear down to the chin. Does this signify that the face is in fact a mask? The mask speculation was suggested by Sir Edwin Durning-Lawrence (author of Bacon is Shakespeare) who stated that it was a cunningly drawn cryptographic picture. Could it be an Actor's mask or even someone's Death Mask? Is it a mask attached to the back of someone's head? It has also




been suggested that the eyes are wrong as they are in fact two right eyes. So we start the trail of the possible concealed messages in the Martin Droeshout engraving of Shakespeare. The Doublet The engraving on the doublet is quite intricate but on closer inspection it seems to show according to Sir Edwin Durning-Lawrence, author of 'Bacon is Shakespeare', the front of the right arm is on one side but, 'without doubt', the back of the left arm on the other side. The picture was given to two tailoring journals. 'The Tailor and Cutter', March 1911 and 'The Gentleman's Tailor', April 1911 . Both these trade journals agreed that the figure was clothed in a coat composed of the back and the front of the same left arm. This was proved by cutting out the two halves of the coat and showing them shoulder to shoulder. The Collar It has been suggested that the type of collar depicted on the engraving did not exist. This is not a style of collar that has ever been traced to any one else during this era, it appears to be completely unique. The head does not appear to be connected to the body but is sitting on the collar. We were intrigued by the Droeshout picture. The collar, as depicted, would have been an impossible part of Shakespeare's apparel - the collar looks solid, it has no fastenings, how would you put this on? So we looked at the collar at all angles - if it was not a collar what else could it possibly be? Source:

The Martin Droeshout Code Disclosure




The Martin Droeshout engraving with its numerous anomalies is of the utmost importance in deciphering the author's true identity. The engraver has gone to great lengths to conceal the writer in code. It would be wise and fitting to begin our quest here by decoding the engraving and with it, establish once and for all the true identity of the author. This picture has many anomalies: Two right eyes, the right arm of the doublet is from the back of the left arm and the collar is most peculiar too. His head is suspended above his body, there is no sense of neck and the face has a line as though it were a mask. Below is the short poem by Ben Jonson, which accompanied the Droeshout engraving. To the Reader This Figure, that thou here feeft put, It was for gentle Shakefpeare cut; Wherein the Grauer had a ftrife with Nature, to out-doo the life : O, could he but haue drawne his wit As well in braffe, as he hath hit His face; the Print would then furpaffe All, that was euer writ in braffe. But, fince he cannot, Reader, looke Not on his Picture, but his Booke Ben Jonson The Martin Droeshout decoding is now presented here for the literary world to survey. It is astounding to think how history is manipulated, falsified and conveyed as truth. True meaning concealed from the masses through stratagem and ciphers not easily discernable by the ordinary. It is without doubt one of the most elaborate deception to befall a nation, uneducated or otherwise. In the effort to contain truth by way of code, arrogance has become their unwitting foe. The thread of deceit untwines now lifted to uncover 400 years and a mystery to the ownership of the Shakespeare identity. This picture is the clue to bring an end to belief and finally disclose The pattern on the collar is an alphanumeric code. Let’s start extends to the rim of the collar to form a Capital T the neck. One short, the other ‘with subtle shading’  on the left as we see it. There are 2 lines that protrude from the true identity of Mr. William Shakespeare. And when turned upright looks like this = IT The abstruse meaning of ‘2 right eyes’ = to write i’s i in Roman Numerals is one. T is the 20th letter of the alphabet, answer = 120 (meaning concealed phonetically) Beneath the chin there are 2 lines ( II ) = 2 On the right side there are 5 horizontal lines = 5 And 4 vertical lines = 4 The only thing necessary now is to bring the numbers together in sequence = 1 2 0 2 5 4 And for those with a discerning mind will know it is a date (UK) = 12/02/54 The author lived during the Elizabethan era, 16th century. …. (12th February 1554) 'To the Reader; Ben Jonson writes, "‘gentle Shakespeare cut." In addition the head appears not connected to the body', and the 'collar appears solid.'.... Cut... head not connected to body... the solid collar... These are clues, the collar represents the blade of an axe. The date on the collar represents the date of execution (beheading). Beheading was confined to those of noble birth who were convicted of treason and was an alternative to the normal punishments for this crime. Men convicted of High Treason were condemned to hanged drawn and quartered and women to be burned at the stake. In the case of the nobility the monarch could vary these punishments to death by beheading. There is one more clue in the sleeves of the doublet. The right arm of the doublet is from the back of the left arm. In other words the sleeve has moved from 'left to right,' the answer is again concealed phonetically. left to right = left to write This noble individual did not suffer a death, as was proclaimed… but was ‘left to write.' This means the person was surreptitiously reprieved (secret pardon), and as a consequence fate has bequeathed humanity literature of the utmost eloquence and delight. Charles Beauclerk, was very close with his observations. “The story that he tells over and over again is that of the King or man of high station who suffers a fall from high grace. Loses his crown his wealth his name his very identity and after many trials and humiliations retrieve those at a deeper level”… Charles Beauclerk Author, Shakespeare’s Lost Kingdom (Source: Last Will, and Testament) Now turn to the annals of history and search through the records to find the noble who was said to have suffered a Traitor’s death on that fateful day… 12th February 1554. To write i's ( III ) is to write Roman Numerals
