Macbeth: King, Queen, and Clan
Media: DATA CD - 1 CD (128 pages)
Author: J. Macbeth
Perhaps with the exception of Robert the Bruce, no Scottish king is so famous as Macbeth ? and yet, what do we really know about him? If our only reference is Shakespeare's play, then he was a power-hungry monster, taking life and throne from the rightful king. His queen was even worse. But, as John Macbeth here shows, he was of an ancient Celtic family, the hereditary ruler of Moray, and a popular leader with a strong personal following. This is an excellent introduction to the murky history of Macbeth, his queen, and his clan down through Scottish history.
Also included on this CD are several short articles on the surname Macbeth which originally appeared in The Celtic Monthly, Transactions of the Gaelic Society of Inverness, and other journals.
This CD consists of scans of the whole of the original book, which can be browsed, enlarged and printed if required. Please note: it is not searchable.
