Scottish monarch, queen consort of Alexander II The Peaceful. The dates of her birth and death are uncertain. She was the daughter of Enguerrand III, Baron de Coucy and Marie de Montmirel-en-Brie. She became Alexander's second queen on May 15, 1239 at Roxburgh Castle, and gave birth to the king's only son and heir, Alexander, on September 4, 1241. After the king's death in 1249, some sources say she married a second time to a French nobleman, Jean de Brienne. She died at the age of approximately 31.
