It has often been said that today’s award-winning series Game of Thrones is loosely based off William Shakespeare’s Macbeth. The original gory tale of murderous ambition, however, was musingly plucked from Scottish history by William Shakespeare. Illustrating history as an imaginative tragedy, Shakespeare subsequently presented his work to King James I.

Macbeth, the main character, thinks he can advance to the throne without any consequences. Blood exemplifies the guilt he is now stuck with, and due to Macbeth's excessive ambition, and overwhelming guilt, he is now faced with the consequences.
