Two deaths bring peace between families. Romeo and Juliet had a forbidden relationship. The Capulets and Montagues have an ancient grudge against each other. The three people who are most responsible for the death of Romeo and Juliet are the parents, Tybalt, and Balthasar.
Tybalt is one of the people at fault because if he was not such a bully then half of the fights would not have happened. For example, Tybalt tells Romeo in the courtyard “I am for you. [He draws]” (III, I, 84). He tells Romeo that he came to fight him and pulls out his sword. Another reason he is at fault is because he is always blaming Romeo for things such as, Tybalt says at the party “Tis that villain Romeo” (I, v, 73). He tells his uncle that Romeo is a villain because he is at their party.
The parents of Romeo and Juliet are some other people a fault. If they would learn to not hold a grudge then their kids would still be alive. For instance, the narrorator says in the prologue “And the continuance of their parents rage” (Prologue, 10). What it’s saying is that they have been fighting for a long time. At the end of the book the Prince tells the Capulets and the Montagues “Capulet, Montague, see what a scourge is laid upon your love” (V, iii, 301). The Prince is saying that because of their fighting their loved ones are dead.
The person most responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s death is Balthasar. He sees Juliet being put into the tomb but he does not know the plan so he rides back to Romeo in Mantua and tells him “her body sleeps in Caples’ monument and her immortal part with angles lives. I saw her laid low in her kindred’s vault” (V, I, 19). He is telling Romeo that Juliet is dead and is resting in her families tomb. When Friar Lawrence asks Balthasar to go with him he says “My master knows not but I am gone hence, A fearfully did menace me with death” (V, iii, 136). Balthasar will not go into the tomb because he is afraid that Romeo will kill him.
