Duncan is currently the pharaoh of Egypt, but his son Macbeth is very jealous of him and will do whatever it takes to become pharaoh.
I will be the pharaoh Duncan, just wait.
Listen here Macbeth, I decide who from our family is pharaoh and that's final!
Macbeth goes and speaks to his wife, Lady Macbeth, about his great ambition to become the pharaoh of Egypt. Lady Macbeth despises the current pharaoh, Duncan, and pleads Macbeth to kill him.
Ugh, I despise Duncan, I want you to go and just kill him!
I can't do that, I could die if I did that!
Lady Macbeth has a plan to kill Duncan, she then persuades Macbeth into murdering Duncan even with Macbeth's great fear of being caught by someone and then being killed.
I'll meet you there, just make sure we don't get caught!
I can help you do it, you'll be a great pharaoh and I'll be alongside you too! Meet me in his palace
Lady Macbeth gives the guards of Duncan's palace a drink which makes them drunk and eventually makes them fall asleep. Once they're asleep, they make their way into Duncan's palace and into his room.
Lady Macbeth keeps an eye out for anyone coming nearby whilst Macbeth goes on with murdering Duncan in order for Macbeth to become the pharaoh. They then give the knife to one of the guards as a cover up for what they committed.
I warned you, Duncan.
Macbeth attends the mummification of his father Duncan, feeling all kinds of guilt after the foul murder he committed on Duncan the night before. He is made pharaoh by an assistant of Duncan as he was a member of his family.
How could they have done such a thing? I thank you for giving me the role of pharaoh.
I'm so saddened to hear that the guards have murdered our pharaoh, since you were the son of his family, I honour you with the role of the pharaoh.
