 Edgar Atheling   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Edgar relied largely for his support upon Archbishop Stigand and upon Earls Edwin of Mercia and Morcar of Northumbria and, when this weakened, (within a matter of days of the witan), Edgar was forced inevitably to submit to William at Berkhamstead in either late November or early December 1066.
However, Edgar joined in the rebellion of the earls Edwin and Morcar in 1068 and, though defeated, he fled to the court of Malcolm III of Scotland.
Edgar is believed to have travelled to Scotland late in life, perhaps around the year 1120, and was still alive in 1125, but may have died soon after, in his early seventies.

 Great Scots: Psychological Perspectives on Scottish History and Leadership
Edgar — son of the defeated Saxon king Harold — and Margaret are fleeing England after an aborted attempt to regain the English crown from William "the Conqueror"; extremely pious, Margaret is canonized in 1250, and is now known as St Margaret, the only Scottish royal to achieve sainthood.
Margaret bore six sons — Edward, Edmund, Ethelred, Edgar, Alexander, and David — and two daughters — Matilda (Edith) and Mary; Edgar, Alexander, and David followed Malcolm as kings, with David becoming one of Scotland's greatest monarchs; Matilda married Henry I, younger son of William the Conqueror.
Edgar's was an unremarkable reign; among the lowlights of his tenure was a peace treaty with the Norsemen, which yielded the western islands, including Iona.
