How Well Do You Know Saint Margaret?

The answer is TRUE. St. Margaret was born into noble families from Hungary and Saxony, and she spent much of her youth in the court of her great uncle, the saintly king of England, Edward the Confessor. When fleeing from the invasion of William the Conqueror, Margaret was shipwrecked off the coast of Scotland. There King Malcolm befriended her family, and you know… one thing led to another and they got married at the castle of Dunfermline.

There are some clues from that last paragraph which tell you when St. Margaret lived. So can you guess in which century our Margaret was Queen of Scotland?
