Very little is known of this person. Historical records do not identify the wife of King Malcolm II of Scotland. There is some evidence to suggest she was from Ossory, Ireland. As she married a king it is likely she is a highborn lady from the Kingdon of Ossory but even this is not certain.

Some genealogists have put forth Sigurd I Magnusson (c. 1090 – 26 March 1130) as her father. Sigurd's wife, Blathmin Ní Briain, also called Blathmin Ua Briain or Blathmin O'Brien, being an Irish princess. This latter claim does not make sense as Malcolm was dead by 1034, long before Sigurd was born.

Others suggest that Malcolm's wife was a daughter of Brian Boru (c. 941 – 23 April 1014), a famous King of Ireland. While this is at least possible, no one has as yet put forth any proof of this.

Possibly named Aelgifu.

Queen-64 and Ossory-14 appear to represent the same person because: This may seem like strange one. just trying clear out an old unsourced unlinked marginally meaningful profile. Most reasonable match is as wife of Malcolm per comments in Queen-16. Obviously, do not keep any of the data from Queen-16.

Sigurdsdottir-52 and Ossory-14 do not represent the same person because: Different names, spouses, dates

Note all the names and dates are invented. Nothing is known except that somebody was the mother of Malcolm's child.
