Why only these 8 plays?

"Caesar" should work for Antony and Cleopatra - that is how he is normally referred to.

Surprising that the Merchant of Venice himself (Antonio) doesn't say much in his own play! I'd say the same for Julius, but assassination as early as Act 3 cuts out that rhetoric.

I love how much Hamlet talks. That boy just talked on and on and on and on...and he's got almost three times more lines than the character with the next most.

Sarahbelle, thanx for the pick

Great quiz, plenty of potential for sequels (I hope)! :-D

Oh yeah, and Shakespeare was the man. 5 stars for sure!

I would also take "Octavian" for Octavius, and "Lawrence" and/or "Friar Lawrence" for Friar Laurence. (In fact, you might want to make "Friar Lawrence" the main answer -- that's the way it's spelled in the First Folio...)

Pants, I tried Friar Lawrence, then moved on in confusion. I would be grateful to have that spelling accepted as well.

^^both versions are now accepted

Tried Katharine, but nothing doing....I see I should have said Queen Katherine. So why not King Henry VIII etc. Otherwise, liked it

@dicko: Katherine on its own is accepted — it’s not the "Queen", it's the spelling that's the killer! I was also kicking myself for that, having tried Catherine and Katharine and then given up, but it's a fair cop, I think…
