About Margaret (Plantagenet) of England, Queen consort of Scots

Margaret (Plantagenet) of England, Queen Consort of Scotland

Daughter of Eleanor of Provence and Henry III, King of England

Margaret was married on 26 December 1251, at York Minster, to King Alexander III of Scotland, with whom she had three children.

Children:

  • Margaret, Princess of Scotland (1260/61–1283), who married Eirik II of Norway
  • Alexander, Prince of Scotland (21 January 1263 Jedburgh – 28 January 1283 Lindores Abbey); buried in Dunfermline Abbey
  • David of Scotland (20 March 1272 – June 1281 Stirling Castle); buried in Dunfermline Abbey

Margaret was unhappy in her married life as Queen Consort of Scotland. Her feeling of mistreatment caused political tension between England and Scotland (Echols & Williams, p. 305).
