Margaret the Queen

Nigel Tranter

7 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Historical adventure, Historical fiction

The compelling 11th century story of the beautiful Saxon princess who fled William the Conqueror to become the queen of Malcolm King of Scots, the king who overthrew Macbeth.

First she was Margaret the refugee. A Saxon princess, sister of Edgar Atheling who, but for William the Conqueror, would have been King of England. She came to Scotland in 1069.
Beautiful, sympathetic and devout, whe was an unlikely consort to the rough and ready Malcolm King of Scots and slayer of MacBeth, a man who cared for little other than hunting, drinking and the brutal arts of war.
Yet, through her gentle strength of character and intelligence, she was to have a profound and lasting effect on her adopted nation and people that lasts to this day.
