Juliet's cousin in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Tybalt shares the same name with the Tibert/Tybalt character in "Reynard the Fox," a set of European fables. Tybalt is the King of Cats in those stories. In Romeo and Juliet, Mercutio regularly taunts Tybalt by calling him "King of Cats." Tybalt's name would have been funny when the play first came out, nowadays it's an obscure reference.
