Get this from a library! King hereafter: a novel. [Dorothy Dunnett] -- A novel of the historical figure of Macbeth. King Hereafter () About book: Originally published on my blog here in March Dorothy Dunnett's novel of Scotland in the Dark Ages concerns the historical Macbeth - or does it? She certainly knows more about the situation in eleventh century Scotland than Shakespeare did (Macbeth ruled just before the Norman conquest of England), but her plot relies on an identification between two.

Dorothy Dunnett is best known for her two superb series of historical fiction - The Lymond Chronicles, and The House of Niccolo - set in the 15th and 16th centuries and ranging all over Europe and the Mediterranean while being anchored in Scotland, and for King Hereafter, the 11th century story of Earl Thorfinn of Orkney whom Dorothy believed was also King Macbeth/5(77). King Hereafter Book Covers. Rather fewer editions of these, and strangely there seems to be a lack of real imagination in the early ones - just stylised banners - .
