Margaret of England (29 September 1240 – 26 February 1275) was a medieval English princess who became Queen of Scots. A daughter of the Plantagenet king Henry III of England and his queen, Eleanor of Provence, she was Queen consort to Alexander III "the Glorious", King of the Scots.
- Margaret, Princess of Scotland (1260/61–1283), who married Eirik II of Norway
- Alexander, Prince of Scotland (21 January 1263 Jedburgh – 28 January 1283 Lindores Abbey); buried in Dunfermline Abbey
- David of Scotland (20 March 1272 – June 1281 Stirling Castle); buried in Dunfermline Abbey
Margaret is said to have been unhappy in Scotland, and created some tensions between England and Scotland by writing to her family in England that she was poorly treated in Scotland.
It was said that Margaret was responsible for the death of a young Scottish courtier. While walking along the River Tay , she became annoyed with the young man. She jokingly pushed him into the river, but he was swept to his death by a powerful current before anyone could help.
