Prince of Verona in Romeo and Juliet Quiz

If your idea of a prince was formed largely by the magic of Disney, Shakespeare would like to have a word with you. The Prince of Verona's duties seem to be more in line with keeping squabbling children from coming to blows than they are looking for that perfect princess. His subjects are unruly and prone to violence; his threats are taken seriously only for a short time. Although the character of the Prince of Verona does not play a large role in the tragedy, his lack of effective leadership is shown to be endemic.
