Where does Romeo go to get the poison?
In Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, Romeo, believing Juliet is dead, visits an apothecary in Mantua to buy poison. Through the unfortunate misadventures of these "star-crossed lovers," Romeo is unaware that Juliet has taken a sleeping potion provided by Friar Lawrence so she can avoid marrying Paris.
Then Tybalt kills Mercutio, and then Romeo kills Tybalt. Had Rosaline just said yes, then all of that could have been avoided. For his crime, Romeo is banished from Verona. The prince is the man that issued that statement, but Romeo isn't exactly around to hear the sentencing, because he has already fled the city.

- Tybalt. Tybalt is the main antagonist in William Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet. He is the son of Lady Capulet's brother, Juliet's short-tempered first cousin, and Romeo's rival. Tybalt shares the same name as the character Tibert/Tybalt the "Prince of Cats" in Reynard the Fox, a point of mockery in the play.
