Born about 1045, died 16 Nov., 1092, was a daughter of Edward "Outremere",
or "the Exile", by Agatha, kinswoman of Gisela, the wife of St.
Stephen of Hungary. She was the granddaughter of Edmund Ironside. A
constant tradition asserts that Margaret's father and his brother
Edmund were sent to Hungary for safety during the reign of Canute,
but no record of the fact has been found in that country. The date
of Margaret's birth cannot be ascertained with accuracy, but it must
have been between the years 1038, when St. Stephen died, and 1057,
when her father returned to England. It appears that Margaret came
with him on that occasion and, on his death and the conquest of
England by the Normans, her mother Agatha decided to return to the
Continent. A storm however drove their ship to Scotland, where
Malcolm III received the party under his protection, subsequently
taking Margaret to wife. This event had been delayed for a while by
Margaret's desire to entire religion, but it took place some time
between 1067 and 1070.
