      Macbeth from Shakespeare’s “Macbeth”:
      Macbeth is the main character/antagonist in Shakespeare’s play, “Macbeth”. He is Thane of Glamis (Glarms) at the beginning of the play but gains more and more as the story progresses, even becoming king. The cause to this is because of the Weird Sisters or the Three Witches saying a prophecy. The prophecy was that Macbeth would become Thane of Cawdor and soon after that, would become King of Scotland. When Macbeth and his friend Banquo return from the battle, King Duncan tells them that the Thane of Cawdor was executed for treason and gave Macbeth the title. After one of the prophecies became true, Macbeth wanted to become king. Just after he got to Dunsinane, Lady Macbeth, who got his letter, forced him to murder the king while he was sleeping after a dinner at Dunsinane. Macbeth hesitantly kills the king, but saw an imaginary dagger covered in blood before he did the deed. After becoming King of Scotland due to Duncan’s sons being suspects, Macbeth was bent on keeping his position as long as possible. He remembered that the Weird Sisters said that Banquo’s son, Fleance, would become king. Scared of losing his prestigious title, he hired two assassins to kill Banquo and his son. When the assassins returned, they said that Banquo was killed but Fleance survived. That night, Macbeth kept hallucinating because of his guilt. He decided to go to the Sisters again and they said to “beware of Macduff, Thane of Fife” and that “No man born of woman could hurt him” as well as that “he wouldn’t lose a battle until Birnam Wood walks to Dunsinane.” Macbeth felt mainly relieved until before his battle against the army Macduff rose in England where he was told that Lady Macbeth died and that Macduff’s soldiers cut down Birnam wood as used it to hide themselves. Macbeth killed every other soldie until it was just him and Macduff left. Macduff said that he was born the Caesarean way due to technical issues as his mother died before his birth and after he finished those words, he chopped off Macbeth’s head and then had it put on a pike. The Weird Sisters finally took the form of three crows and circled around Macbeth’s decapitated head saying, “All hail Macbeth! All hail! All hail!”
