There must be a better way of distinguishing the play Macbeth from this actual king. --Ed Poor Talk 22:28, 18 January 2009 (EST)

Yeah. Especially with my feeble attempts at getting the Disamb right!! The best would be "Macbeth (play)" or "Macbeth" (in apostrophes) for the play and "King Macbeth" or plain "Macbeth" for the real live fellow. (Or you can tell me in words of one syllable how to disambiguate!! I thought I had worked it out, but obviously not. :))
(Whatever we do with Macbeth, the problem is going to rear its ugly head down the track with some of the other Scottish kings who share names with Tsars and Popes and other monarchs. I'm the poor sod who is most likely to have to "do" these people and I hate having to look up the dates of their reigns every time I link them.) Cheers.AlanE 22:41, 18 January 2009 (EST)
