Margaret Drummond, Queen of Scotland
b.abt 1330 Fife, Scotland
d.aft 31 Jan 1375
Facts and Events
Margaret Drummond (circa 1340 – after 31 January 1375), known also by her first married name as Margaret Logie, was the second queen of David II of Scotland and a daughter of Sir Malcolm Drummond, Knt. (died circa 1346) by his wife Margaret Graham, Countess of Menteith.
Margaret first married Sir John Logie of that Ilk, having by him a son, John of Logie. She later served as a mistress to King David who was widowed from his first wife, Joan of The Tower, on 14 August 1362.
Margaret then married David II of Scotland at Inchmurdach in Fife, on 20 February 1364. They had no children and the King divorced her on 20 March 1369 on grounds of infertility. Margaret, however, travelled to Avignon, in southern France, and made a successful appeal to the Pope to reverse the sentence of divorce which had been pronounced against her in Scotland. Having borne a child from her first marriage, it seems likely that David himself was infertile, since his thirty-four year marriage to his first wife also bore no issue.
Margaret survived the King, and was alive on 31 January 1375, but seems to have died soon after that date.
