(c. 1080–1118),

queen of Henry I and duchess of Normandy. First wife of Henry I and daughter of Malcolm Canmore, king of Scotland, and his queen St Margaret, sister of Edgar the Atheling. Her marriage to Henry in 1100 was clearly intended to reinforce the legitimacy of his kingship by establishing a link with the old English royal house. She is said to have kept a splendid, but pious, court and was a generous patron of artists and musicians.
