16th November - Saint Margaret of Scotland - Independent Catholic News

16th November - Saint Margaret of Scotland - Independent Catholic News: Queen and patron of Scotland. Born in 1046, St Margaret was educated mainly in Hungary, where her family were exiled during the rule of the Viking kings in England. As one of the last members of the Anglo Saxon royal family, she was in danger after the Norman Conquest and took refuge at the court of Malcolm II of Scotland. Intelligent, beautiful and devout, she married Malcolm in 1069 and the union was exceptionally happy and fruitful for Scotland. The present royal family can trace their descent to Margaret and her daughter Matilda.
