The prince states that hes got MONTAGUE IN HIS BLOOD, so he's a Montague.

Actually the prince does not say that he has "Montague in his blood" at all. He does say:

"Capulet, Montague, see what a scourge is laid upon your hate, that heaven finds means to kill your joys with love. And I, for winking at your discords too, have lost a brace of kinsmen."

Capulet and Montague have lost their "joys", their children. But the Prince has lost kinsmen over and above those, and just two of them (Mercutio and Paris). The Prince, Mercutio and Paris belong to a family that is neither Montague nor Capulet. That is why Mercutio says, "A plague on both your houses." He is cursing Montagues and Capulets, but not his own house, which is different.

No. He is the Prince of Verona and the voice of reason between the Capulet and Montague families, but he is not a member of either family.

The Prince is holding them responsible if any breech of the peace.

Montague was to later meet Prince Escalus in his castle in Freetown, which was the common judgment place.

Prince Escalus is the ruler of Verona who tries to bring peace and order to to Montague-Capulet feud. He is a relative of both Paris and Mercutio.

He says they have to lay off the fighting or he'll have them put to death.

The characters were: Romeo, Juliet, Lord Capulet, Lady Capulet, Lord Montague, Lady Montague, The Nurse, County Paris, Prince Escalus, Friar Lawrence, Friar John, Mercutio, Balthasar, Benvolio, Tybalt, Samson, and Gregory.

He blames Capulet, Montague and himself. Clearly he thinks that the leaders of a city are responsible for everything that goes on in it.

No, Mercutio is related to the Prince. He is neither a Montague or a Capulet.

Neither he is a relative of the prince.

No, Romeo is just the son and heir of Montague, a prosperous nobleman. The Prince in Romeo and Juliet, who is called Escalus, is the ruler of the city.

They and their followers were fighting in the streets.

Juliet was a capulet, and Romeo was a Montague.

Juliet was a Capulet, and Romeo was a Montague.

Juliet is a Capulet and Romeo is a Montague.

Neither one. He is related to the Prince, but is more friendly to the Montagues. His cousin Paris is also neither Capulet or Montague although he is friendly with the Capulets.

Romeo, Juliet, Montague, Capulet, Lady Capulet, Lady Montague, Paris, Friar Laurence, Tybalt, Mercutio, Nurse, Benvolio, and the Prince(:

Juliet is the Capulet that is in love Romeo the Montague.

Only one of Romeo's friends is related to the prince and that is Mercutio; he is a kinsman to the prince. Therefore he is not a Montague not a Capulet.
