Did You Know?
Norwegian Princess - Scottish Queen
Margreta Eiriksdatter - 'The Maid of Norway', was the daughter of Eric II of Norway and the granddaughter of Alexander III of Scotland. On the death of her Scottish grandfather, the young Norwegian princess inherited the Crown of Scotland and preparations were made for her coronation at Scone. But the sea voyage from Norway, made late in the year, proved too much, and she died before reaching Orkney.
Margreta (born Bergen 1283, died Orkney 1290) is buried at Kristkirken (Christ's Kirk) at Holmen, Bergen. A memorial stone stands at the spot.
