1281 A Bond of Amity was established between the Crown of Norway and
Princess Margaret of Scotland marries King Eric II of Norway.
1283 They had a child also named Margaret, known as the "Maid of Norway". In
the same year the Queen dies leaving her infant daughter.
1284 The Estates of the two countries met at Scone in Scotland where it
that, in the event of Alexander III of Scotland dying without
issue, the throne of
of Scotland would go to the infant "Maid of Norway". During her
country would be governed by a Regent.
Robert the Bruce was the nearest male relative to Alexander III.
1290 "The Maid of Norway" (then seven years old) was despatched to
died off Orkney.
"The North Wind sobs where Margaret sleeps
And still in tears of blood her memory Scotland steeps"
It is said that he body was returned to Norway but others
maintain that her
body lies in Harold's Tower in Caithness.
1293 King Robert the Bruce clinches his own right to the Scottish throne
his sister, Isabella, to King Eric. This was Eric's second
marriage. See 1281 above.
1299. They had a daughter, Ingeborg, who was betrothed to Earl John of
she was only two years of age.
1311 A renewal of the betrothal took place.
1312 Earl John dies without having 'bedded' the young Ingeborg.
The purpose of the above information is to show how closely allied the
were with the Scots through their principal families and that the idea of a
Northern Commonwealth which would have included Scotland was very much part
of Queen Margrette's ambition to build up an Atlantic Alliance which would
provide a block
to the growing power of the (German) Hanseatic League.
