Lady Macbeth is without a doubt one of Shakespeare’s most famous characters. She’s right up their with Romeo, Juliet, Hamlet, Othello and King Lear. Outside of his own work, Lady Macbeth is one of the most famous women ever written. Her character bucked traditional female archetypes at the time and she was portrayed as a strong-willed, power-hungry, self-motivated individual. After inciting her husband to murder King Duncan of Scotland, making him the King, she began to unravel. It’s funny how murdering somebody can seem like the answer to all your problems, but then you have to deal with consequences. She’s at her best in when she sleepwalks and recounts the details of her crime. Lady Macbeth ultimately has a rather unceremonious exit from the play and dies offstage, presumably having committed suicide.
Because when you play the game of thrones you either win or you die.
