St Margaret of Scotland (1046-1093)
St Margaret of Scotland was born to an Anglo Saxon father and a Hungarian mother, in Hungry where they were exiled during the rule of the Danish kings in England. They then returned to England, but when William of Normandy invaded England, Margaret took refuge with King Malcolm III of Scotland. It was with him she fell in love, married and they had 8 children. As a queen she was a great influence for the cause of religion and piety. She had a great devotion to prayer and the poor. She died in Edinburgh in 1093.
