Please help me find a family tree/chart of the characters in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. I want to have a better understanding of how all the characters are connected so it will help me understand things better. I cannot find one anywhere!
And props to you (and best answer) if you could just make up a quick little one on paint or something. Nothing fancy, just the names and how they are connected.
Thanks so much.
Montague: Romeo (Main Character) , Lady Montague (Romeo’s Mom), Lord Montague (His Dad), Mercutio (Romeo’s Best Friend, he is very agrresive), Benvolio (Romeos Cousin, very passive)
Capulets: Juliet, Lady Capulet, Lord Capulet, Tybalt (Juliets Cousin, very violent, Nurse (kind of like juliets nanny, she is very talkative),
Paris: wants to marry Juliet
Friar Laurence: a preist and friend to romeo and juliet
Prince: the leader of Verona
Thats all I can think of, good luck!
and if you can, try and watch the movie. watch the older one thought because it is way more similar to the book than the new one.
