Macbeth kills King Duncan
Macbeth murders Duncan, King of Scots, and takes the throne. The event was later sensationalised in the play by Shakespeare as a truly dreadful deed, but in truth a lot of rulers were murdered in those turbulent times!
This king was the son of Richard, Duke of York, and a leader of the Yorkist cause in the Wars of the Roses
He took the throne after the murder of Henry VI
He was followed to the throne by Edward V
