The Downfall of Macbeth
The Blame is of the Witches
The soldiers of Malcolm's army disguises themselves with leaves and mud to attack Macbeth. The witch's prophecies state that he will not be defeated until the woods come to his castle, and they do. This frightens Macbeth into surrendering and not wanting to fight. This leads to Macbeth's death. If the witches hadn't prophesized that Macbeth would have been king and giving him the idea then this all wouldn't have happened. They are the real ones to blame.
