St. Margaret's Chapel, Edinburgh Castle
St. Margaret's Chapel, Edinburgh Castle
The chapel was built by David I around 1130 and is the oldest building in Edinburgh. Margaret was born into the English Royal Family around 1045. After the Norman invasion of 1066 she fled to the court of Malcolm III of Scotland, and soon married him at Dunfermline. Malcolm was killed fighting the Normans in 1093. Margaret took to her bed and died from a broken heart in Edinburgh Castle. The chapel was built by her youngest son, King David I. Margaret was canonised as St. Margaret of Scotland, for her many acts of piety and charity in her adopted country.
