Which Jane Austen Secondary Heroine Are You? - Quiz

Jane Austen's heroines get a lot of attention, and every fan can compare herself to Elizabeth Bennet, Marianne Dashwood or Catherine Morland. �But what about the ladies who don't get as much recognition? �Which one are YOU most like?


You May Get

Mrs. Bennet

You are Mrs. Bennet of Pride and Prejudice!  Once a great beauty in your day and very popular with the officers, you have settled into comfortable married life with a husband who takes delight in vexing you.  You have high hopes for your daughters and can't wait to see them settled with young men of great fortune (preferably with five or ten thousand a year, thank you).  Others see you as whiny, shrill and too fussy about your nerves, but they don't know what you suffer.  But so it is.  Those who do not complain are never pitied.

Charlotte Lucas

You are Charlotte Lucas of Pride and Prejudice!  You are sensible and good natured, calm and not easily flustered.  You take things in stride and are quick to think of others.  You were never romantic and never will be, but perhaps this is a good thing because you will never suffer a broken heart.  You are a steadfast and loyal friend, and can be depended upon.  Your only fault, really, is your taste in men.
