  • Name Margaret of Scotland  
    • There is much debate about the ancestry of Agatha, the mother of St. Margaret, Queen of Scotland. The dynastic usurpation and post-invasion trauma of 1066 dictated that St. Margaret's maternal origins were of secondary importance to the English Chroniclers until the marriage of her daughter, Edith-Matilda, to Henry I in 1100. There are two basic solutions, Slavic or Salian. Humphreys (2003) leans towards the Slavic, however I have followed the Salian. Moore (2019) has proved the Salian. [3, 4]
