I got that on Amazon Vine. It's a retelling of the Shakespeare play and doesn't owe much to the historical period of Macbeth.
Les proz e les vassals
Souvent entre piez de chevals
Kar ja li coard n’I chasront

'The Brave and the valiant
Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

Histoire de Guillaume le Mareschal

I thought that might be the case so I didn't buy it.
