Macbeth is shown to be a valiant military commander who could lead his people to winning many wars. The captain recounts his military prowess, and shows him to be a strong person who can fight off invaders with ease. Macbeth is also a skilled politician. He is humble when he needs to be, and he appeals to everyone. His humbleness is shown when he flatters King Duncan when being thanked for his service. The people would love him because he is shown to be a fair man. Macbeth also has a strong minded wife who could assist him in his ruling and make him never be hesitant on his decisions. Lady Macbeth would be great council for Macbeth to help him make the proper decisions for the country and the people.Mark Wright
As the readers were shown in the first act, Macbeth is looked up to by many. He is a war hero who is strong, confident, loyal to his men, courageous, and able to get the job done. Being a strong military commander is an exceptional asset to taking on the power of the throne because it not only provides victories over other nations, but it inspires hope in the people that the king is indeed a capable leader. But with all these noteworthy qualities, Macbeth is still undeniably able to express gratitude and humbleness when thanked for his troubles and he is able to give credit where credit is due. All these qualities are undoubtedly qualities which are fit for king.
Macbeth so far seems to be the poster child or living example of a Scottish King. During the time period in which "Macbeth" takes place, the Scottish culture promoted a warrior like personality, brave, fearless, a type of society which could be closely paired to the Vikings. Being a noblemen, Macbeth is without a doubt an intelligent figure, at least for the standards of that time, considering education was not abundant in Scotland during the 11th century. His decisions are well thought out, on and off the battlefield. He is strong, intimidating, and when his physical appearance combines with his intellectual superiority over any other claims to the throne, he seems to be an obvious choice. In fact the only thing that Macbeth seems to be missing in his King like qualities is that he has no legitimate claim to the throne family wise. In other words he has no bloodline connection to the current King or any before him. He represents the Scottish culture well, earning the respect and love of his fellow people by driving a multitude of enemies out of his homeland. The only possible weakness that can be detected in Macbeth is his kindness. I personally think this is simply because Macbeth only has good intentions deep down, and wishes the best for Scotland. However if Macbeth does have a flaw, which would be his kindness, the companions he has surrounded himself with will more than see to the fact that no one takes advantage of him. These companions being his wise and loyal friend Banquo, and the iron fisted Lady Macbeth.
Macbeth possesses many qualities that would make him a great king. He is a man of noble class, showing he has not only the intelligence to be king, but also the social ranking to pursue the throne. He is an outstanding military leader but is also brave and fearless, making him more than capable to defend Scotland and protect the land which he would rule. However, Macbeth is humble, a quality shown after he was promoted by King Duncan to Thane of Cawdor, and doesnt not glorify himself. Lastly, Macbeth's spouse, Lady Macbeth, is just as clever and intelligent as her husband, if not more so. She is an ambitious and determined woman, providing Macbeth with a strong foundation, support, and potentially advise in ruling Scotland.Grace Burnett
Macbeth has been introduced to us in the second scene of Act I, a brave war hero. Also Macbeth is a wealthy nobleman who is held with the highest respect, because of his honor and nobility. Because he is nobleman, we can assume that he has been educated well, and being intelligent is a good quality any king should posses. Since Macbeth is so smart, he can come up with strategies and ideas at the drop of a hat. Also, Macbeth is the second highest nobleman, which means that there is only one person (not including the king) in his way to get the crown. As the readers well know, the man who was in his way was accused of treason, so Macbeth will be receiving a great promotion. One can already tell that this man is ambition, and he would love to be king one day, and that day will come quicker that he thought
Macbeth has shown many qualities that would make him a great king in the first act. He is a wealthy noble man and respected war hero. Macbeth was also well educated, allowing him to be a fair leader, and make important decisions on the battle field and for his kingdom. He looks like a noble man and king should with his manly appearance. Macbeth always is portrayed as humble when the king and other nobles praise him for his heroic actions. Macbeth also has a strong wife. Lady Macbeth has ambition and drive, and knows that Macbeth is fit be king. She gives him the final push he needs to be king.
Macbeth is introduced as a brave leader in war that can lead any army to victory. He is obviously very intelligent through his victories in battle. He has the stature and confidence to make him a good king as well. He has a mind that desires success and progress, shown when he is promoted Thane of Cawdor. While he can be brutal, his heart is good and kindness "pours out of his house". Macbeth would serve very well to the people, showing and giving them the utmost respect. Finally, Macbeth is humble, and this is shown in his awe and honor he shows towards Duncan. While Macbeth does have some fatal flaws, Macbeth possess these qualities that could make him a great king.
Macbeth does not have any promising qualities as a virtuous ruler, clearly making him unfit to be perceived as a good king. Originally, Macbeth is portrayed to be an honorable warrior who was successful on the battlefield and loyal to his king. However, as the plot progresses, Macbeth’s character morphs from a brave hero into an unstable and ruthless ruler. Considering how Macbeth came into rule in such an unjust and unnatural way ruins Macbeth’s chances of ever becoming a noble king. By being easily influenced by Lady Macbeth and fooled by the three witches, Macbeth is incapable of being independent and stable in his reign. Macbeth’s several hallucinations also prove that he is unstable. Overall, Macbeth does not acquire any pertinent or recognizable qualities that could even begin to describe him as decent, let alone a good king.
