Extracts from this document...

Macbeth is also shown as very loyal to his king Duncan this is shown were the captain says "Like valour's minion carv'd out his passage Till he fac'd the slave... he unseam'd him from the nave to th' chaps" This shows that Macbeth is loyal to his king and will cut down any man or army that opposes him.

Finally the witches tell Macbeth that no man that came out of there mothers womb can kill him but when he comes face to face with Macduff he tells him that he didn't come out of his mothers womb and at this point Macbeth is so surprised that he is frozen then this is where Macduff strikes him down.
