  • Macbeth becomes increasingly ruthless and orders the murder of Banquo and his son, Fleance, to prevent Banquo’s descendants from claiming the throne.
  • Banquo is killed, but Fleance escapes.
  • Macbeth is haunted by Banquo’s ghost during a banquet.

  • Macbeth orders the murder of Macduff’s family.

Act 5:

  • Lady Macbeth’s guilt leads her to madness and suicide.
