Lady Montague dies after her son's exile. It is thought that she died of grief, as Montague states:

Prince.
Come, Montague; for thou art early up,
To see thy son and heir more early down.

Alas, my liege, my wife is dead to-night;
Grief of my son's exile hath stopp'd her breath:
What further woe conspires against mine age?
