    I was given a GCSE homework and I was asked to bring the characters Macbeth and Lady Macbeth to the current century and imagine who they would refer too.

    I've gotten Macbeth as Mu'ammar al-Qaḏḏāfī, the current ruler of Libya, took over the country in a coup.

    I need a Lady Macbeth and a description of the person as well.


    Does it need to make sense in relation to who Macbeth is or can she be another character who fits her personality attributes but is not necessarily anything to do with Mu'ammar al-Qaḏḏāfī?

    I've always thought there was a similarity between her and Belle Gunness. http://listverse.com/2007/09/09/top-10-most-evil-women/

    Probably that doesn't make much sense though in terms of your Macbeth character.

    Sorry! Will post back if inspiration strikes.

    I could use Belle Gunness. Thanks for the help.
