Subject:        Macbeth

The historical Lady Macbeth has at least one child-Lugtake or Lulach-
from an earlier marriage to Gillacogmin, Mormaer of Maray (Bullough,
Narrative and Dramatic Sources, 7.433). After Malcolm's victory,
Lugtake, thinking himself the lawful inheritor, was crowned at Scone
with the support of Macbeth's remaining forces. Macduff, now earl of
Fife, defeated Lugtake in 1058; Fife was more loyal than Cawdor.
