    The three witches in Shakespeare's play Macbeth predict that Macbeth will become Thane of Cawdor and King of Scotland, and that Banquo's descendants will become kings. Many get confused and think that one of the predictions is that Macbeth will become Thane of Glamis. However this is not a prediction; when the witches meet Macbeth, he is already Thane of Glamis. They also predicted that they would kill him and rape him

    When Macbeth and Banquo first encounter them in Act 1, Scene 3 of the play, the three witches make three predictions: The Second Witch predicts that Macbeth will be made Thane of Cawdor. "All hail, Macbeth! Hail to thee, Thane of Cawdor! The Third Witch predicts that Macbeth will become king. All hail, Macbeth, that shall be king hereafter! Then Banquo asks them to predict his own future. If you can look into the seeds of time And say which grain will grow and which will not, Speak, then, to me, who neither beg nor fear Your favors nor your hate. The First Witch calls Banquo, "Lesser than Macbeth and greater," and The Third Witch makes the the third prediction: Thou shalt get kings, though thou be none. So all hail, Macbeth and Banquo! Macbeth learns very quickly that he has been named Thane of Cawdor by King Duncan, who had ordered the present Thane of Cawdor to be executed for treason. This sudden fulfillment of the first prediction in the very same scene makes a strong impression on both Macbeth and Banquo. It will lead to the murders of both Duncan and Banquo.
