Hecate is queen of the witches. Many critics think she wasn't actually part of the play and was written in years later to spice things up. In Act 3, Scene 5, Hecate appears before the Witches to express her displeasure for not being invited to mess with Macbeth. That's really about the extent of her involvement.
Have I not reason, beldams as you are?
Saucy and overbold, how did you dare
To trade and traffic with Macbeth
In riddles and affairs of death,
And I, the mistress of your charms,
The close contriver of all harms,
Was never called to bear my part,
Or show the glory of our art?
