Edgar, King of Scots
Birth: 1074, Scotland
Death: Jan. 8, 1107
City of Edinburgh, Scotland

Scottish Monarch. Son of Malcolm III Canmore and Saint Margaret of Scotland. With the help of William II Rufus of England, Edgar defeated claimant Donald Bane and succeeded his father in 1097. He would remain loyal to William II and his successor Henry I. In a treaty of 1098, he ceded the Western Isles, including the holy island of Iona to King Magnus of Norway. Edgar never married, and died childless at Edinburgh Castle at the age of 33. He was succeeded by his brother Alexander. (bio by: Kristen Conrad)
