Numerous answers exist for your question about Shakespeare’s Macbeth.  Opinions differ.  You could say that the situation is ambiguous, there’s more than one way it can be interpreted.What the reader knows for certain is that both Macbeth and Lady Macbeth are ambitious.  After the first of the predictions by the witches comes true, Macbeth thinks about the possibility of killing Duncan, as does Lady Macbeth.  When they meet for the first time in the play there is at least an implied agreement that they will assassinate Duncan.Macbeth changes his mind and tells his wife that they will go no further in their plans to assassinate the king.  Lady Macbeth talks him back into doing it.  She has the opportunity to do it herself, but she is unable to because the sleeping Duncan reminds her of her father.  Macbeth does it.That is what the reader knows with relative certainty.  Whether or not Macbeth would have ultimately gone ahead with the assassination without Lady Macbeth is speculation.By the way, Lady Macbeth has nothing to do with Macbeth’s ordering the killing of Banquo and Fleance or with the killing of Macduff’s family.  She knows nothing about those until after they occur. And the gentlewoman is irrelevant to this discussion.  She simply sees Lady Macbeth sleepwalking and understands that the Macbeths must have been responsible for all the murders that have been occurring.  She simply comments that she would not want to trade places with Lady Macbeth.   She makes no comment whatsoever about Lady Macbeth’s influence over Macbeth.
