Should this article be at this title? After all, Macbeth really existed, and it's not obvious that the play rather than the king is the primary usage. Peter Jackson (talk) 09:01, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

I see from the History that John Stephenson started this article and wrote most of it. Presumably he should be asked whether it might be changed to a disambiguation page and the content transferred to Macbeth (play). --Martin Wyatt (talk) 21:01, 29 March 2016 (UTC)
Yes, it should be there. I suggest that Macbeth redirect here, though (I'm not sure how many people know there was a real king). John Stephenson (talk) 21:03, 30 March 2016 (UTC)

If you do it that way there'll have to be a hatnote "For other uses see ..." or whatever. Peter Jackson (talk) 17:04, 31 March 2016 (UTC)
