Marie de Coucy


Marie de Coucy

Marie de Coucy (c. 1218 – 1285) was the daughter of Enguerrand III, Lord of Coucy and his third wife Marie de Montmirel (c. 1184–1267). She was Queen consort of the Kingdom of Scotland.

Biography

On 15 May 1239 she married King Alexander II of Scotland at Roxburgh, by whom she gave birth to the future King, Alexander III of Scotland. The marriage brought an alliance between the Scots and the Coucy lordship, and for the rest of the 13th century, they exchanged soldiers and money. Her husband died in 1249, and so two years later she returned to Picardy, although she would frequently revisit the Kingdom of Scotland. She has also visited Canterbury on pilgrimage in 1275–76.

Her second husband was Jean de Brienne, Grand Butler of France, whom she married sometime before 1257. She was his second wife. They had no children together, however, de Brienne had a daughter Blanche by his first wife Jeanne, Dame de Chateaudun.

Marie de Coucy died in 1285.
