Holinshed’s narrative of witches, prophesy, treason, execution and murder were topics that fascinated King James VI of Scotland (and by then James I of England) to the point of obsession. Shakespeare didn’t miss this opportunity, putting the finishing touches to the script. Completing it in time for a special royal performance at Hampton Court that same summer. Entertaining the King and his brother-in-law, Christian IV, King of Denmark. Although often associated with Cawdor Castle, the murder of Duncan takes place in Inverness Castle.
