Do you know these Legendary Lovers?

Updated on November 22, 2014

How well do you know these Famous Lovers?

Everyone in the world understands Love.

It's an emotion that unites us across the ages, it knows no barriers of geography nor does it touch only the chosen few. Each and every one of us has been moved by Love. The stories of Great Lovers, of Star-Crossed Lovers, and of Love which conquers all are part of our vast human heritage.

At all times, in all places, we tell the tales of those whose Love transcends time and place. It's the tragic chronicles of heartbroken lovers which we remember more readily than those which end happily. For, not only do we understand Love, we understand a bruised and bleeding heart.

But how well do you know these pairs of Lovers, from history, mythology and literature? .

True love is like ghosts, which everybody talks about and few have seen.

A little more on some of these Lovers

Some of these lovers may be less known than others.
