Welcome to Midsummer Madness. Who is the greatest Shakespearean character of all time? We pitted 64 of them against each other and our audience’s votes determined the winner. It has been simply MADNESS!

All of the results have been tabulated and we’re going to make Much Ado about the winner: Congratulations Beatrice! She handily beat Hamlet by twenty percentage points and is now officially the greatest Shakespeare character of all time. Thank you to everyone who voted!
