Product Description

Details

Queen Margaret died in 1093 and was canonised in 1250. Until a generation ago, every Scots child was taught a pallid and uncontentious version of her life, drawn from the hagiography written not long after her death. Even twentieth-century biographies have been uncritical and pious in tone. Eileen Dunlop has produced a book, which aims at a more balanced, psychologically probing account of a remarkable life.

Press Reviews

'...fascinating in its unpicking of the myth.' Scotsman 'This book is a piece of careful, disciplined research, but it is also a gripping yarn well told. Who needs legend when history is this good?' History Teaching Association Yearbook 2006
