In 1603, James VI of Scotland ascended the English throne, becoming James I of England. London was alive with an interest in all things Scottish, and Shakespeare turned to Scottish history for material. He found a spectacle of violence and stories of traitors advised by witches and wizards, echoing James’s belief in a connection between treason and witchcraft.

Thanks op
Cheers. It's been 40 years since did this at School. Time to read again!
Thanks
Apparently Shakespeare was a bit harsh on Macbeth. He didn't murder the king, the king made war on him, apparently and Macbeth turned out to be a decent king. Truth isn't as good a story as Shalespeare's tale though
