The original copy of Shakespeare’s last will and testament is three pages long and his signature is visible on each. The changes Shakespeare made to his will in the last month of his life cast new light on him as a family man and friend. It appears he knew he was dying and amended his will to bequest mourning rings to his friends and left his favorite piece of furniture to his wife.
