I believe that the weird sisters are to blame for the murder of Duncan. This is because when they inform Macbeth that he will be king it clouds his judgement and causes him to inform his wife, who plots the murder against Duncan. Since Macbeth's judgement is clouded he commits to the plan and kills Duncan and two chamberlains, ultimately regretting it.


  1. Wow, never thought of that! but still, i blame lady macbeth for everything! she is scary. she makes macbeth look like a puppet doll.

    1. Dannng chirps Marjone! You have a good point though.

  2. Good point, Aiden. I never really thought about putting the blame on the Weird Sisters. This goes back to the idea of fate vs. freewill.

  3. I agree. Whether the weird sisters are good or bad, they were the ones who told Macbeth about the prophecy, and if they hadn't, Macbeth would never have killed Duncan.

  4. I don't know if Macbeth would have never killed Duncan if the Weird sisters hadn't said anything about him becoming king, because to me you kind of need to already have it in yourself to be able to kill someone purposely. That being said I defiantly think the sister's prophecy got the ball rolling on Lady Macbeth's plot to murder Duncan.
