Macbeth (1040-1057)



Mac Bethad mac Findláich, known in English as Macbeth was King of Scots (or of Alba) from 1040 until his death. He is best known as the subject of William Shakespeare’s tragedy Macbeth and the many works it has inspired, although the play itself is of limited historical accuracy.
