'' The Pearl of Scotland''

Queen of The Scots

Wessex Princess

( My Ancestor)

Seal of Edgar of Scotland

Saint Margaret of Scotland (Scots: Saunt Magret, c. 1045 – 16 November 1093), also known as Margaret of Wessex, was an English princess and a Scottish queen.

Margaret was sometimes called "The Pearl of Scotland". She was born in exile in the Kingdom of Hungary, she was the sister of Edgar Ætheling, the shortly reigned and uncrowned Anglo-Saxon King of England.

Margaret and her family returned to the Kingdom of England in 1057, but fled to the Kingdom of Scotland following the Norman conquest of England in 1066.

By the end of 1070, Margaret had married King Malcolm III of Scotland, becoming Queen of The Scots.





Her Parents:

Father: Edward The Exile,  son of King Edmund Ironside and of Ealdgyth, son of King Æthelred the Unready and his first wife, Ælfgifu of York, son of King Edgar and Queen Ælfthryth, son of Edmund I and Ælfgifu of Shaftesbury, son of Edward the Elder,son of Alfred the Great and his wife Ealhswith

Mother: Agatha, Agatha's origin is alluded to in numerous surviving medieval sources, but the information they provide is sometimes imprecise, often contradictory, and occasionally demonstrably false. The earliest surviving source the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, along with John of Worcester's Chronicon ex chronicis and its associated genealogical tables (sometimes named separately as Regalis prosapia Anglorum), Symeon of Durham (thaes ceseres maga) and Ailred of Rievaulx describe Agatha as a kinswoman of an "Emperor Henry", the latter explicitly making her daughter of his brother (filia germani imperatoris Henrici). It is not clear whether the "Henry" mentioned was Henry II, Holy Roman Emperor or Henry III, Holy Roman Emperor, although John of Worcester in Regalis prosapia Anglorum specifies Henry III
