Romeo is one of the main characters in William Shakespeare’s famous The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. Romeo is from the Montegue family, sworn enemies of the Capulets. He and Juliet Capulet fall in love, and the notion of “star-crossed lovers” is born of their difficulties. When someone is described as a “Romeo” it means he is a man who falls in love passionately.
