At the end of the story The Duke marries Viola and Sebastian marries Olivia. After all of the mistaken identity that arises in the play the people who truly love each other are together at last at the end of the play. In the beginning of the play the Duke was in love with Olivia; Olivia was in love with Cesario; and Cesario is actually a woman named Viola who is in love with the Duke.

Olivia was madly in love with Cesario, but unfortunately for her Cesario was really Viola who was in love with the duke. The good part about their union was that Olivia wanted Cesario/Viola, and Cesario/Viola was Sebastian's identical twin so the difference co... Continue Reading
