The article discusses theories concerning the identity of playwright William Shakespeare, focusing on the "Prince Tudor" (PT) theory, also known as the "Tudor Rose" theory. The theory argues that English noble Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford, was the true Shakespeare and that he fathered a child, Henry Wriothesley, by English Queen Elizabeth I. The author considers the idea of a state conspiracy and examines claims that the Earl of Oxford and scientist Francis Bacon were Elizabeth I's sons.
