There are three family circles in Romeo and Juliet. The family of Prince Escalus is the third family in the play. This family includes the Prince, Count Paris, and Mercutio (Romeo's best friend. This family truly acts as the peacemakers as Mercutio is Romeo's best friend and Count Paris is to marry Juliet.
