Lady Macbeth is noble lady who is seen as a cunning and sly women in the book. She is very loving and loyal to her husband but is also shown to be ambitious. Her ambition and determination to make Macbeth further reinforces strong spirit.

Depressing her conscience, she plots to kill the current king, King Duncan as she decides that the removal of him is the fastest way to crown Macbeth king. She cunningly manipulates him by questioning Macbeth's love to her.

"Come, thick night,
And pall thee in the dunnest smoke of hell,
That my keen knife see not the wound it makes,
Nor heaven peep through the blanket of the dark,
I would, while it was smiling in my face,
Have pluck'd my nipple from his boneless gums,
And dash'd the brains out, had I so sworn as you
Have done to this." 
fear who knows it, when none can call our power to account?--Yet who would have thought the old man
to have had so much blood in him."
