 Saint Margaret’s | About St. Margaret
Margaret began her life as a “Royal Refugee.” Exiled to Hungary by a foreign king, her English family were victims of the many political struggles of those nations which had survived the turbulent Dark Ages of Europe and were now entering the second millennium after Christ, the Middle Ages.
Ten years after Margaret’s birth in Hungary, England’s royal family were allowed to return home to reign; so Margaret grew up a princess in the English Court, yet separated from the political intrigue by her teachers, the Holy Benedictine monks.
So, at the age of twenty, Margaret began the third chapter of her life—ten years in Hungary, ten in England, and now she was with the primitive peoples of Scotland at Dumferline.

 Saint Margaret of Scotland Summary
Margaret of Scotland (1045-1093), wife of the Scottish king Malcolm III, introduced important religious reforms into Scotland and was a civilizing agent in the social life of that country.
Nevertheless, the descendents of Margaret did, after the death of Duncan II, through the assistance of the Norman establishment of England, succeed Malcolm; and these sons regarded their Anglo-Saxon heritage as important, as the latter was one of the main devices for legitimizing the authority of the Scottish kings in Lothian and northern England.
The Roman Catholic church formerly marked the feast of Saint Margaret of Scotland on 10 June, but the date was transferred to 16 November in the liturgical reform of 1972.

 Patron Saints Index: Saint Margaret of Antioch
Her mother died when Margaret was an infant, and the child was raised by a Christian woman.
Part of her story involves her meeting the devil in the form of a dragon, being swallowed by the dragon, and then escaping safely when the cross she carried irritated the dragon's innards; this accounts for this virgin's association with pregnancy, labour, and childbirth.
She was one of the saints who appeared to Saint Joan of Arc.

 David McRoberts
Margaret was a daughter altogether worthy of such forbears, strong in character, solid in piety and a profound scholar, the ideal person required to carry through the renaissance of culture and piety of which her adopted country stood so much in need.
The source of Margaret's reform is the same Cluniac revival which led her contemporary, Hildebrand, to fight against the moral degeneracy of the church and to fight for its independence against the lay usurpers of ecclesiastical rights.
Margaret's immediate achievement was hard-won and of necessity limited in range: for instance the queen did not attack the root cause of the whole evil state of the church, namely the usurpation of ecclesiastical positions by laymen.

She was the granddaughter of an English king; in 1070 she became the bride of Malcolm of Scotland, thereafter reigning as Queen until her death in 1093.
Saint Margaret did not neglect her duties in the world even if she was not of the world.

Yes, Saint John Eudes was an early contemporary of hers, and wrote wonderfully about both the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts.
But it was the revelations to St. Margaret Mary that catapulted devotion to the Sacred Heart from one among many wonderful, valid devotions to THE Catholic devotion par excellence.
