Biography

Sybilla (d. 1122), queen of Scots and consort of Alexander I, was probably the illegitimate daughter of King Henry I (1068/9–1135) and his mistress Sybilla, the daughter of Robert Corbet, a Shropshire landholder, and the sister of Reginald, earl of Cornwall, and the William who appears to have accompanied Sybilla to Scotland. She m. before 1114 King Alexander I (d. 1124) when she was in her mid teens and he was over 30. They had no issue and she died suddenly at Loch Tay on 12 or 13 July 1122. [1]

Research Notes

I can't find has no source for her birth 12 Jul 1092 at Domfront, Orne, Basse-Normandie, France, but the DNB guesses her birth date was closer to 1100.

Lawrie, 1905, pp. 28, 30, 42, 44, 61, 168, 262, 291, 294, 325

p. 28-30 signs a charter that is possibly spurious, to Scone Priory and dated circa 1120 as Sibilla Regina Scottorum, filia Henrici Regis Angliae

p. 42 - her husband Alexander granted the island of Loch Tay to the Canons of Scone circa 1123 perhaps in the memory of this wife (pro anima reginae Sibillae)

She gave Beeth to the Abbey of Dunfermline, confirmed by charters of King David circa 1128 (p. 61) & circa 1150 (p. 168)

In the sources in the biography it does state that she was childless.
