Gruoch, or Lady Macbeth
The Charnel House
Chicago, IL
Share this event:

"I have given suck, and know how tender 'tis to love the babe that milks me: 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." With these words Lady Macbeth spurs Macbeth into killing King Duncan.

So, where's this 'babe' that milked her?

The real historical Lady Gruoch was mother to Luloch, future king of Scotland. Her first husband, Gilcogmain, killed Macbeth's father and was, in turn, killed by Macbeth. Gruoch and her son thus became Macbeth's property, to keep or to kill as he chose.

In Gruoch, the future Lady Macbeth and her child escape the conflagration which kills her first husband; they find safety in a shelter for homeless families run by three other witches. Romance and betrayal follow. And dark comedy. And tragedy.
