In Macbeth the witches prophecies seem to negate Macbeths free will However at some instances Macbeth willfully chooses evil over good The witches prophesies that Macbeth will be thane of Cawdor and King of Scotland The idea of being King of Scotland soon comes to rule Macbeths thoughts and life He could just let fate happen but instead he willingly takes fate into his own hands Lady Macbeth talks her husband into killing Duncan the King of Scotland Macbeth could have said no which he did at first but eventually he gives in and consents He murdered Duncan while he was sleeping in Macbeths own house The next morning when the people find out Macbeth has the guards killed for not watching over the King very well He knows that its not the guards faults yet he willingly has them killed He got Duncan out of his way and Malcolm flees to England so no one is standing in the way and Macbeth becomes King of Scotland Later on in the play Banquo and Fleance become suspicious of Macbeth So Macbeth hires men to murder both Banquo and Fleance Banquo is killed but Fleance is able to escape Once Banquo is out of the way Macbeth finds out that Macduff has gone to England to find Malcolm Malcolm is the rightful heir to the throne and if he comes back he could overthrow Macbeth So now Macbeth has the murderers go to Macduffs house They kill Macduffs wife and sons as well as anyone else in the house Many people died because Macbeth chose evil over good Macbeth did not have to kill anyone or do anything to become King If he had let fate happen he eventually may have become King This all started with the killing of Duncan and it progresses from there Macbeths evil side comes out and he does kill anyone and everyone who gets in his way
