(d. 1192),

Cistercian nun. Possibly Hungarian by birth but with an English mother, or else, as popularly reputed, an Englishwoman, Margaret took her mother on pilgrimage to Jerusalem and Bethlehem, where they both led an austere life of penance for some years. Her mother died in the Holy Land, but Margaret made other pilgrimages to Montserrat and Puy before she became a Cistercian nun at Sauve Benite. There she died; miracles followed at her tomb; her shrine became a principal feature of the church and crowds came there to invoke ‘Margaret the Englishwoman’, whose feast was kept on 3 February. The local tradition that she was English was accepted by the Maurists and Gallia Christiana. Feast: 16 November.
