1 milk chocolate & nuts Viking ship
1 milk chocolate Viking whalebone plaque head
This chocolate packet commemorates the child bride and queen, Margaret, Maid of Norway, who lived in the late 1200s. Because she was only seven, we have chosen two milk chocolate Viking designs to remember her by. Margaret was born in Bergen, Norway, as heir to both the Norwegian and Scottish crowns, being the daughter of the Norwegian king Erik, and granddaughter of the Scottish king Alexander the third. When Alexander died, Margaret became Queen of Scots. However, on her way to Scotland, her ship ran into bad weather. It came ashore at St Margaret’s Hope in the Orkney island of South Ronaldsay, where little Margaret died of seasickness.
