Romeo belongs to the house of Montague, and Juliet, to the house of Capulet. The two families are sworn enemies, and Romeo and Juliet’s forbidden love leads them to a path that can only end in tragedy and despair. Perhaps Shakespeare’s best-known play, Romeo and Juliet, even today, is synonymous with doomed love.
