Question: Who dies first - Romeo or Juliet?
Answer: In the final scenes of Romeo and Juliet, although Juliet appears to be dead when Romeo finds her, she is actually in a deep drug-induced sleep. Grief-stricken, Romeo takes his life first. When Juliet awakens, she finds her lover's body and, realizing that their plan has somehow failed, decides to join Romeo in death. Happy Birthday William Shakespeare!
