What are 3 witches called?
Weird Sisters, also called Three Witches, the creatures who prophesy the destinies of the main characters in Shakespeare's Macbeth. The term Weird Sisters was first used by Scots writers as a sobriquet for the Fates of Greek and Roman mythology.
It is Banquo who first describes the Witches. His words in Act 1, Scene 3 depict the Witches as stereotypical hags – 'withered' and 'wild', unearthly beings ('That look not like th' inhabitants o' th' Earth') with 'skinny lips', chapped ('choppy') fingers and beards (1.3. 40–46).
That grouping is part of a long tradition. The three witches of Macbeth are the obvious starting point. Shakespeare may have based those fate-deciding 'weird sisters' on the Fates—the Moirai of Greek myth or Parcae in the Roman version—of whom there were also three.
The three main characters are the Halliwells: oldest sister Prue (Shannen Doherty), middle sister Piper (Holly Marie Combs) and Phoebe (Alyssa Milano).
Plot. On October 31, 1693, in Salem, Massachusetts, Thackery Binx witnesses his little sister Emily being whisked away to the woods by the Sanderson sisters, three witches who are named Winifred, Sarah, and Mary.
After a battle in Scotland, Macbeth and his friend Banquo meet three witches, who make three prophecies - Macbeth will be a thane, Macbeth will be king and Banquo's sons will be kings.
Three witches meet Macbeth and Banquo on the heath (marshes) as the men return from battle. They predict that Macbeth will be named Thane of Cawdor and King of Scotland and that Banquo will be the father of kings.
According to folklore, witches were believed to have devil spirits, or familiars, as companions who took the form of animals. The first one is a cat, the second is a hedgehog (or hedge-pig), and the third is a harpy ("Harpier"), a monster from Greek mythology with the face of a woman and the body of a bird.
The most evil part of the Witches is that their prophecies are made in malice and they gain nothing from their actions, in summary they are trouble makers. Arguably if the Witches never made their prophecy to Macbeth and Banquo, Macbeth may never have murdered Duncan and his ambition will have remained redundant.
The correct answer is 'Lady Macbeth'. Lady Macbeth is known as the Fourth Witch in Shakespeare's women characters. In William Shakespeare's Macbeth, the characters of Lady Macbeth and the three witches drive the happenings of the play.
