Time: Macbeth has gotten back from the war.
Events: The witches tell Macbeth that he will be the thane of Cawdor and later the king. The witches go on to say Banquo’s children will be the next kings. Rosse and Angus enter the room and they say that Macbeth shall be the thane of Cawdor, which proves to Macbeth and Banquo that what the witches said is true. They go to meet the king after this.
