Margaret Maid of Norway
Birth: Apr., 1283
Death: Sep. 26, 1290

Queen of Scotland. Daughter of King Eric II of Norway and Margaret, daughter of Alexander III of Scotland. In 1284 the Scottish nobles recognized the infant Norwegian princess as heiress presumptive to the Scottish throne. Upon Alexander's death, she became queen under a regency at the age of 3. England's Edward I arranged for her marriage to his eldest son Edward, which the Scots agreed to under the Treaty of Birgham, with the stipulation that Scotland remain independent. However the young queen died during the voyage from Norway, at Kirkwall in the Orkneys. She was 7 years old. Her death marked the end of the Canmore dynasty, and the resulting dispute over the succession threw Scotland into years of turmoil. (bio by: Kristen Conrad)

Your Majesty, although you had so much responsibility here on earth, I hope that in heaven you have discovered the joys and simple pleasures of childhood.
