"like Macbeth"

Macbeth (the English version of the Gaelic: Mac Bethad mac Findlaich) was a King of Scotland who ruled between 1040 and his death in 1057.

Macbeth is also the title of a play by William Shakespeare, written between 1603 and 1607. Although the title character is based on the real-life Macbeth, the events of the play are largely fictional.
