King David I (or Dabíd mac Maíl Choluim; also known as Saint David I or David I "the Saint") (1084 -- May 24, 1153), was King of Scotland from 1124 until his death, and the youngest son of Malcolm Canmore and of Saint Margaret (sister of Edgar Ætheling). He married Matilda, daughter and heiress of Waltheof, Earl of Northumbria, in 1113 and thus gained possession of the earldom of Huntingdon.
. . . . He had two sons, Malcolm (not to be confused with Malcolm IV of Scotland, this Malcolm's nephew) and Henry, and two daughters, Claricia and Hodierna.
St. Margaret's chapel is located in the middle of Edinburgh Castle in Edinburdgh, Scotland, and was built by King David sometime after 1093 as a private chapel for the royal family. He dedicated it to his mother, Saint Margaret, who died in the castle in 1093.
