Margaret was an English princess when she married Malcolm, King of Scotland; he came to rely on her in matters of state, as well as church and household. She established schools, hospitals and orphanages, worked with her husband to rebuild the monastery at Iona, and founded Dumfermline Abbey, a Benedictine house which later became her final resting place.
