Short Summary / Biography:
Juliet is the daughter of Capulet and Lady Capulet. She is generally considered to be an innocent and a romantic. She is quite naïve and is a well-brought up young lady. Upon meeting Romeo, she falls instantly in love with him, even once she learns that he is a Montague.
When the two declare their love for one another, she is immediately willing to marry him the next day, and does so. Her trust in her husband is very strong, and she refuses to think poorly of him even after she hears that he has killed her cousin, Tybalt. Her loyalty is fierce and passionate.
When her parents (who are unaware that she is married to Romeo) insist that she marry Paris, she threatens to kill herself. Friar Lawrence provides her with a potion that will make her appear dead and promises to send word to Romeo, intending the two to sneak away from Verona together when she has revived without their families knowing what has happened.
However, when she awakens, she finds Romeo there, who has committed suicide by drinking poison because he did not know she was alive.
She stabs herself with Romeo's dagger, unwilling to live without him, her loyal and true love.
