I don't believe Hamlet is mad! It is purely a disguise of insanity, so he can be "let off the hook" when he kills Claudius in the act of revenge for his murdered father. The reaosn i believe this is mainly due to the vital scene with Ophelia. When Polonius and Claudius are trying to find out whether Hamlet is mad due to unrequited love, reguarding Ophelia. Hamlet initially in the scene acts sane, though when his quick mind uncovers that he is being watched his character changes dramatically and turns into the Hamlet who is "acting" mad. For surely someone who was mad couldn't change there character like that?

Was Hamlet truly mad or was it a facade

But the point is, are you saying Hamlet is mad because of all these things, or not? Because rage is not madness either, and everyone makes mistakes, maybe even destroys things, when he's lost his temper. Hamlet just happens to destroy a life, because he happens to have a sword. But his mistake is thinking it is Claudius instead of Polonius, not doing the killing itself.
