I-it can't be! Grannvale's here already? Damn it all! What are those useless mercenaries doing out there?! Ugh... Fine, I'll fight them myself!
— Macbeth

Macbeth (Japanese: マクベス Macbeth) is an noble from Agustria appearing as a boss in Chapter 2, guarding Infini Castle.


As Sigurd's army entered Agustrian territory and Eldigan was sent in prison by Chagall, Macbeth was ordered by the latter to seize Infini Castle. As Sigurd's army arrived at Heirhein Castle, he sent Waltz and Beowolf against them.[1] He then tried to fight them back but he ultimately died in the process.

  1. "Chagall: You imbecile! You turned your back on this crisis to line your own pockets, and now we've lost Heirhein! There had better be a good explanation for your behavior, Macbeth!
    Macbeth: Er, um... My humblest apologies, Your Majesty! Forgive me, I beg of you! I've already sent out the order for Waltz's sellsword unit to move in at once.
    " — Chagall and Macbeth, Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War
  2. "Man: Infini's Lord Macbeth is the foulest, most gold-obsessed man there it. He does nothin' but torment us for his own profit. I wish I could kill em' with my bare hands!" — Villager, Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War
  3. "Macbeth: So, Heirhein's finally made their move... Perfect. Release the brigands on the villages, as we arranged! Under the old king, you couldn't even dare to meddle in any of his property... Yet it is the easiest thing to cheat Chagall! Strip everything of worth you find and bring it back here. Leave no stone unturned!" — Macbeth, Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War
