      Wikipedia gives a lot of detail about the real Macbeth

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macbeth_of_Scotland

      Are we discussing the real, historical King Macbeth of Scotland or the character by the same name in the Shakespeare play?  They are not the same person.

       

      I really don't know enough about Scottish history to say one way or the other.

      I had noticed that, but  it has the same effect – the baddie is discomfited. 

      Was Macbeth a baddie?  I read somewhere that he was a very progressive, benign king, possibly with a bad PR agency
