According to William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet were married on March 11th 1302. I can find plenty of references to this on the internet, but nothing that explains where this nugget of information comes from. So the question: What is the evidence to suggest that William Shakespeare had Romeo and Juliet getting married on March 11th 1302.

I do not believe Shakespeare gave a date. However, these citations mention the marriage date of a real couple named Romeo and Juliet, whose surnames are similar to "Montague" and "Capulet": "Romeo Montocchio and Juliet Capelletto, the real couple upon which Shakespeare based his play, 'Romeo and Juliet', were married at Citadella, Italy March 11, 1302" http://www.elreno.k12.ok.us/lincoln/parker.htm "March 11... 1302: Romeo Montevecchio and Juliet Cappelletto are married at Cittadella in Italy." http://webs.lanset.com/bookfolk/daybook_pages/march-2.htm
