Margaret, Queen of Scotland

Margaret, Queen of Scotland, was born about 1050 in Hungary, and educated under Lanfranc at the Court of Edward the Confessor. Two years after the Norman Conquest she took refuge in Scotland, and was married by Malcolm Canmore in 1069. The young queen was a great civilising influence. She built a church at Dunfermline, and was active in introducing the practices of the Latin Church into her realm. She died in 1093, and was canonised in 1250. Three of her sons became kings of Scotland, and one of ber daughters, Matilda, married Henry I. of England.
