English king, Margaret married King Malcolm III of Scotland and became Queen of
Scotland, three of her sons became kings of Scotland including St. David I.

husband and help him in state matters.
She was a woman of
ideas and achievements. She invited the Benedictines to Dunfermline Abbey
(where she is buried) and is credited as co-founder. She also founded several
other churches. She organised ferries for pilgrims across the Firth of Forth en
route to Dunfermline Abbey and St. Andrews.

arts and education. She took an active interest in church reform and influenced
church synods as well as affairs of state. Meanwhile she led a simple,
devotional lifestyle reading the scriptures, praying and tending to the poor.
