St. Margaret of Scotland (1045 – 1093) was an English princess from Hungary. When the French Normans conquered England, St. Margaret fled to Scotland. She married King Malcolm and became queen of Scotland. She was a just and holy queen who was generous to the poor. She restored monasteries and started ferry services to enable people to visit holy places. She was also prayerful and loved to read the Bible. St. Margaret’s feast day is on 16 November.
