Iago, the greatest of all Shakespearean villains, who manipulates those around him who believe him to be their friend, to ultimately driving Othello to murder his beloved wife, Desdemona, by filling him with jealousy and delusions of infidelity, in the play, Othello.

Law. As in some great parts of Henry VI Part II, among other plays:

Quote:
The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers.
(the butcher)

Quote:
Is not this a lamentable thing, that of the skin of an innocent lamb should be made parchment? That parchment, being scribbled o’er, should undo a man?
(Cade)

And the fact that what little we have of Shakespeare's direct speech is from his being a witness in small court cases.

Montague

As in "the Capulets and the Montagues" (the two feuding families that Romeo and Juliet belong to). Romeo was a Montague.

Just now learned from Wiki that "Montagues and Capulets" is also the title of a movement in a 1935 ballet depicting the Romeo and Juliet story by Prokofiev.

And further that the piece has been used by rock bands as "walk in music", and that it has been sampled by a "Tribe Called Quest".

Nice!

I'll add the French essayist, Montaigne, whom Shakespeare seems to absorb and comment on in Hamlet and The Tempest (and other plays?).
