Queen Margaret of Scotland by Eileen Dunlop, National Museums Scotland, 2005, 114 pages
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.
