It's not a well-known fact, but among the hundreds of words that Shakespeare invented was "oops!"[1]

[1] In our universe, it's not a well-known fact mostly because it's not a fact. Oops is not attested in usage any earlier than 1921 (according to Wiktionary) or 1933 (according to Etymology Online) or the 1930s generally (according to the Oxford Dictionary).
