"Some say she is buried at Winchester."
Weis' "Ancestral Roots. . ." (1:23), (121:25).
Princess of Scotland. She was born Edith. Her descent from the English kings made her a natural candidate to marry Henry. When she married him, there was controversy because she had spent time at the abbey of Wilton under her aunt, the abbess Christina, in about 1093, and it was claimed that she had worn the veil as a nun. She denied that she had been a nun and instead claimed that she had worn the veil as a ruse to deflect the attentions of William Rufus. William of Malmesbury claimed that her marriage was a love match on the KingÕs part.
