On the Trail of the Real Macbeth, King of Alba by Cameron Taylor

Book Description

The iconic character, Shakespeare's Macbeth, is one of the best known in the English language, but few know that he was a real person with his own story off stage. Macbeth was not the monstrous caricature created by Shakespeare; he was a real man who was born in Moray, part of the Kingdom of Alba, in the early 11th century. From early childhood Macbeth fought real-life treachery to protect his birthright to the throne and ruled successfully from 1040 to 1057. Travel what is now Scotland with a touring itinerary as you follow "On the Trail of the Real Macbeth, King of Alba".
