Does the witches' prophecy of Banquo's son becoming king come true? Does Fleance become king?
I want to know what ends up happening to Fleance.

THe play ends with Malcolm, Duncan's oldest son, being restored to his rightful throne as King of Scotland.
Not in Shakespeare's play itself. However, Fleance is an ancestor of James I of England (James VI of Scotland) who was the king on the throne at the time this play was performed.
