Though Charlie Chaplin always acknowledged his birthday as April 16, 1889, there was no birth certificate ever on file (not unusual at that time), Charlie Chaplin in a 1915 interview claimed he had been born in Fontainebleau, France perhaps to hide the shame he felt at that time of his poor Victorian London roots.

Another thing to add to the confusion is a birth announcement (above at top) that was printed in a Music Hall trade magazine in May of 1889, indicating he had been born on April 15th 1889.
