The Three Witches

The three witches in Macbeth are present in only four scenes in the play, but Macbeth’s fascination with them motivates much of the play’s action. When they meet with Banquo and Macbeth, they address Macbeth with three titles: thane of Glamis, thane of Cawdor, and king hereafter. Next, they predict that Banquo will father kings, though he will not be king himself. Refusing to answer questions, they vanish.
