The first Maggie was constructed at Clydebank near Glasgow, Scotland in 1924 for the CPR's British Columbia Coast Service. She was a class of vessel the CPR called "miniature luxury liners." On March 25, 1925, the Princess Marguerite departed Scotland on her maiden voyage to Victoria B.C. and for the next 26 years sailed the Triangle Route between Victoria, Vancouver, and Seattle. In 1939 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth sailed from Vancouver to Victoria on board the Maggie . [5] [6]

In September 1941, the British Admiralty requisitioned the Princess Marguerite for use in the Second World War . After being retrofitted in Esquimalt, she sailed to Hawaii, Australia, the Dutch East Indies, and across the Indian Ocean en route to the Mediterranean, where she served as a troopship. [7] [8] On August 17, 1942, while en route in a convoy from Port Said, Egypt to Cyprus with 125 crewmen and 998 British soldiers on board, the Princess Marguerite was hit by two torpedoes fired by the German submarine U-83 , sinking with a loss of between 50 and 60 soldiers and crewmembers. [9] News of the sinking was withheld from the public until January 22, 1945.

The second Maggie , along with sister ship SS Princess Patricia II , was built in Scotland as a replacement for her predecessor to serve the Triangle Route. Service was restricted to the Victoria to Seattle route after the new BC Ferry Corporation began providing service between Greater Victoria and Vancouver in the mid-1960s. The harbour-to-harbour overnight service offered by the Maggie was not competitive with the much shorter and more frequent sailings being operated by BC Ferries on their shorter route. After the 1950s only day service was offered by the this vessel. [10]

Margaret of Valois ( French : Marguerite , 14 May 1553 – 27 March 1615), commonly Margot , was a French princess of the Valois dynasty who became queen consort of Navarre and later also of France .

By her marriage to Henry III of Navarre (later Henry IV of France), she was queen of Navarre and then France at her husband's 1589 accession to the latter throne. Their marriage was annulled in 1599 by decision of the Pope. She was the daughter of King Henry II of France and Catherine de' Medici and the sister of kings Francis II , Charles IX and Henry III .

Her marriage, which was to celebrate the reconciliation of Catholics and Huguenots , was tarnished by St Bartholomew's Day massacre and the resumption of the religious troubles which ensued. In the conflict between Henry III and the Malcontents , she took the side of Francis, Duke of Anjou , her younger brother, and this caused a deep aversion of the king against her.
