The final scene of Romeo and Juliet could be considered triumphant because love triumphs over hate. In the last lines of the play the Prince says, "a glooming peace this morning with it brings." He is talking about the peace finally achieved between the two feuding families. The loss of their children, while tragic, has effected a change in their households. We can turn to the Prince again for proof of this when he says, "See what a scourge is laid upon your hate, that heaven finds means to kill your joys with love!" The death of their only children over a forbidden love makes them see the fault in their unreasonable hatred. That revelation is the triumph.

After Romeo and Juliet die, it makes both Capulet and Montague relize that there fighting is pointless... they both lost the ones they love due to some old family rivalry. This makes them relize that there was no point in fighting and so they both become "friends" after the huge fued. For example, they both build statues of each families lost one ( made in gold)
