She persuades her husband into killing Duncan by saying, “screw your courage to the sticking-place, and we’ll not fail” (1.7.60--61). By saying this, Lady Macbeth is calling her husband a coward if he does not kill Duncan. Lady Macbeth is motivated by her ambition to gain power by forcing Macbeth to kill Duncan so they can become the new king and queen to rule over everything. By having Duncan killed, it causes Lady Macbeth to get into trouble because Banquo becomes suspicious that Macbeth and Lady Macbeth were responsible for Duncan’s
In the play of Macbeth, there are some characters that could be responsible for Duncan’s death. I personally think Lady Macbeth is the cause of Duncan's murder. She is the most ambitious to kill the king in the beginning of the play, pressuring Macbeth. Lady Macbeth was persuasive of driving Macbeth to commit the murder. She manipulates him to go through with the murder even though he was very doubtful about it.
“Yet do I fear thy nature. It is too fully o’ the milk of human kindness” (Act I, scn V, 16-17). Lady Macbeth was rying to get her husband to kill King Duncan so Macbeth can take the throne. Macbeth is not merciless enough to take those steps on his own. Lady Macbeth feels as is if Macbeth is too kind to kill Duncan and get the crown on his own.
She is the person who urges Macbeth to murder King Duncan. The reason she does this is on the grounds that she needs more power and needs to wind up ruler. Woman Macbeth supports him by saying things like "… resemble the blameless bloom yet be the serpent under it"(act 1 scene 5 lines 72-73).

Macbeth has a few fears about murdering the lord yet Lady Macbeth addresses his masculinity by letting him know that on the off chance that he was a genuine man, he would slaughter him.

Also, Macbeth’s faith in the three witches is a big reason he decides to do and they are why Lady Macbeth created the idea to kill the King.

Therefore, through an apprehensively cautious tone,
He even informs his most beloved, Lady Macbeth, who also shares his ambition. The play is about treachery and manipulation. First, the witches manipulate Macbeth which sets off the chain reaction, then Lady Macbeth manipulates Macbeth into committing regicide and afterwards Macbeth manipulates the murderers into killing Banquo and his son Fleance. Shakespeare reveals that the witches are being controlled by higher supernatural powers, "call 'em. Let me see 'em," shocking the Jacobean audience and as a result creating doubt and fear of the unknown.
Mental Stability in Macbeth As Erma Bombeck once said, “Guilt: is the gift that keeps on giving” (“A Quote by Erma Bombeck”). In Macbeth, by William Shakespeare, guilt plays an enormous role in the development of Macbeth’s descent into madness. Macbeth is about Macbeth being persuaded by Lady Macbeth into committing heinous crimes, and it all started when Macbeth tells her about premonitions three witches gave him. In pursuit of making those premonitions come true, Macbeth kills King Duncan, which scares his children, Malcolm and Donalbain out of the country, allowing Macbeth to become King.

“The spring, the head, the fountain of your blood is stopped; the very source of it is stopped” (2.3.77-78).
