Which Shakespeare character has the most lines without having a play named for them?

I don't know the answer.

Interesting question. I don't have a clue though.

That's an interesting question. I'm guessing some main character from one of his play's whose name does not refer to a person(s). That would probably narrow it down to basically:

All's Well That Ends Well
As You Like It
The Comedy of Errors
Love's Labours Lost
Measure for Measure
A Midsummer Night's Dream
Much Ado About Nothing
Twelfth Night
Winter's Tale

Hower, to try and find a definite answer to that question would be really tedious. So good luck to you. :)

Thanks for the input. I'll get back if the person who posed the question finds the answer. I believe it's some sort of a quiz question.

But you've made me wonder if it was intended ot mean the play was named after someone and the most lines were someone else -- like Julius Caesar died fairly early on and others...

I'll be back - that's not my sig.

Now i'm thinking this question over. I didn't look at if from the point of view that the play may have been actually named in reference to a particular character, yet another character would have more lines. Maybe i will do a bit more research on it after all.
