Supplementary notes

* Characters with more than one name in the same play have been counted as one character. When multiple characters speak in unison, this has not been included (e.g. these characters are often listed as "all", "both", "citizens", "princes", etc).
Please note: The figures in this graph may be smaller than in other lists online, however this is because other sources often use crawling software that counts the same characters twice (when they speak in unison with other characters, or when their name appears in the title),

Release date is date of extraction.
