Shakespeare's "late romances", simply called "the romances" are a group of few plays which includes

  • Pericles, Prince of Tyre,ca. 1603–08
  • Cymbeline,ca. 1608–10
  • The Winter's Tale,ca. 1609–11
  • The Tempest,ca. 1603–11
  • The Two Noble Kinsmen,ca. 1612–14 (co-written withJohn Fletcher)

Some scholars also include Henry VIII, even if it is usually considered as a history play.

Therefore, the answer "Romeo and Julieet" as a romance is not correct, since it is definitely a tragedy, written in 1594-96 and not included in Shakespeare's late works.
