Margaret the Queen

Margaret the Queen

First she was Margaret the refugee. A Saxon princess, sister of Edgar
Atheling who, but for William the Conqueror, would have been King of
England. She came to Scotland in 1069.

Beautiful, sympathetic and devout, she was an unlikely consort to the
rough and ready Malcolm King of Scots and slayer of MacBeth, a man who

that lasts to this day.
