Why hadn't Macbeth and Gruoch gotten married by 1032? They were 27 years old by the time she was betrothed to Gillecomgain. Why didn't they marry before that?
He had NO prospects. And Duncan probably wouldn't give permission (as both were of the royal blood). The fact that both were still unmarried to anyone else at the advanced age of 27, I think is an indication of how much they were in love.
Was Macbeth genuinely in love (not just smitten) with Dominique? I only ask this because he had known her for such a short time, and even then knew very little about her.
I believe I'll let the story stand on its own without my commentary. You can evaluate for yourself.
Someone asked if Macbeth had ever been married to anyone other than Gruoch and Dominique, and you said "Maybe, but not often." Why not? Why didn't he get married more often?
It's painful to survive one's loved ones. It takes powerful incentives to overcome the natural resistance to get that close to someone.
You've said that Macbeth sometimes works as a stage actor. In what sort of productions? How well does he get along with taking orders from the directors? =)
He's done some Shakespeare, certainly. Probably other stuff as well. Maybe some Stoppard or Shaw. I could definitely see him doing some Shaw.
And I'm sure he got along just fine with the directors. He's not a prima dona or anything.
What was Macbeth's relationship with Gillecomgain like after Gillecomgain became the High Steward of Moray?
What was Macbeth's relationship with Bodhe like after he became King in 1040? By 1057, neither he nor Luach seemed particularly fond of him.
I think they were FOND of him, actually. Doesn't mean they agreed with him much.
How was Demona able to get Macbeth to marry her in such a short time? He only knew 'Dominique' for less than a month, according to the dates you've given.
How do YOU think?
You said that, besides pain, pleasure also passes between Macbeth and Demona. Why would the Weird Sisters toss that in? Doesn't it creep Mac and D out a bit?
For that matter, when did they first find out about that? It must've been a pretty shocking experience.
Your premise is faulty. You make it sound like the Weird Sisters made a choice. No one has definitively stated that. They made a link.
As to Mac & D's reaction, etc., I'm not revealing that now.
Did any of the historical events of Macbeth's reign also occur in the Gargoyles universe? For instance, his war with Duncan's father, Crinan, his pilgrimage to Rome, etc...
Yes. All or nearly all.
Why did Macbeth have Banquo and Fleance as best man and maid of honor at his wedding? He doesn't seem to like them, and the feeling seems to be mutual. So why did he bring them all the way to Paris for his wedding?
They were his employees. They didn't come for the wedding. They came to serve his needs, whatever his needs might be.
