From Theophanu to St Margaret of Scotland:A study of Agatha’s Ancestry
by Michael Anne Guido and John P Ravilious
This paper supports the Polish theory of descent for Agatha, the mother of St Margaret of Scotland, which was first published by John Ravilious in 2009. The issues of conflicting chroniclers, onomastics, and the political context of the Hungarian connection are all explored. New documentation is presented to establish a link between the Piast, Ezzonen and Arpad families as well as evidence that Mieszko had three daughters who survived to adulthood and married.
