[2] Maktildr: Maktildr may have been Matilda, the daughter of Malcolm III of Scotland (d. 13 November 1093) and Margaret, the great-grand-daughter of Edmund Ironside (see Poole 1985, 116-17). Matilda (d. 1 May 1118) was brought up in the care of her aunt Christina, abbess of Wilton, and she married King Henry I of England in 1100 (see Anderson 1922, II, 120-4; Chibnall 1991, 7-11).
