If it hadn’t been for the three witches, Macbeth would

never have killed Duncan nor Banquo. Macbeth, also would

not have been killed my Macduff. The three witches are the

reason that everything happened the way the they did.

In the beginning of the play, the three witches

prophecized that Macbeth would become Thane of Cawdor adn

the King of Scotland. In the near future Macbeth became the

Thane of Cawdor because of his valiant efforts in the war.

Macbeth started to think about the witches proheciesand

started to become a little ambitious. With the constant

nagging and mockery of Lady Macbeth, Macbeth decides to go

through with the murder of Duncan. Thus, another one of the

witches prophecies was fulfilled. The witches also

prophecized that Banquo’s sons will be kings. In the worry

of Banquo finding out about the murder of Duncan and the

thought of Banquo’s son, Fleance, Macbeth hires a few

asassins to murder Banquo and his son.

Later,three ghosts appear in front of Macbeth. First,

an armored head appears and warns Macbeth to beware of

Macduff. Second, a bloody child appears telling Macbeth

that no man born a woman should harm him. Third, a child

holding a tree, tells Macbeth that he is safe until Birnham

Woods comes to Dunsinane. After the three ghosts visit

Macbeth, the apparition of Banquo appears. Following Banquo

is seven of his descendants, all of which were deceased


The first of the three warinings from the ghosts comes

true when macduff allies with Malcolm, one of Duncan’s sons.

Together they plan to retake the throne of Scotland.

Macduff and Malcolm plan to use the leaves and branches of

Birnham Woods as camouflage. Before Macbeth is killed, he

remembers the third ghost that stated that no man born a

woman should harm him. Macduff then explains that he he was

razed out of his mother’s stomach, which means that he was

not born a woman. All three of the warnings from the ghosts

came true.

This is why I believe that if Macbeth had never spoken

to the three witches, none of this would have happened.
