Margaret (Gaelic: Mairead or Maighread) (9 April 1283–26 September 1290) was Queen of Scots and a Norwegian princess, also known as Margaret of Scotland (Norwegian: Margrete av Skottland) and the Maid of Norway (Norwegian: Jomfruen av Norge). Margaret was queen from 1286 until she died in 1290. Her death while en route to Scotland, sparked off the disputed succession which led to the Wars of Scottish Independence.

She was the daughter of King Eric II of Norway and Margaret, daughter of King Alexander III of Scotland. Margaret was born on 9 April 1283 in Tønsberg. Her mother died in childbirth.
