Scottish monarch, queen consort of William I. Daughter of Viscount Richard Beaumont, she married William "The Lion" on September 5, 1186. She bore him 3 daughters and the heir, Alexander. In 1229 she chose the location of a new Cistercian abbey in Fife, and upon her death she was buried before the high altar. A large wooden cross now marks the approximate location of the high altar and Queen Ermengarde's grave.
