The Sisterhood allowed her to be married to Count Hasimir Fenring, the ruler of [[House Fenring]], a [[House Minor]] long aligned to [[House Corrino]]. While present in the [[Padishah Emperor|Padishah Emperor's]] court she persuaded [[Shaddam Corrino IV|Shaddam]] to marry [[Reverend Mother]] [[Anirul Corrino|Anirul Sadow-Tonkin]], whom the Sisterhood knew would not yield House Corrino any sons.

As the wife of Hasimir Fenring, Margot was resident on [[Arrakis]] during his temporary governorship. Prior to their departure, and the arrival of [[House Atreides]], she left an encoded message for the Lady [[Jessica Atreides]], warning her of [[House Harkonnen|House Harkonnen's]] planned treachery.

Unfortunately, Margot's warning is not enough to stop the Harkonnen plot against the Atreides. Duke [[Leto Atreides I]] is killed, and Jessica and her son Paul are forced to flee into the desert of Arrakis.

Later Margot is sent by the Bene Gesserit to seduce [[Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen]] and to preserve the bloodline by retrieving his genetic material (through conception) for their breeding program. She also intends to plant deep in his deepest self the necessary [[prana-bindu]] phrases to bend him, (a Hypno-ligation of his psyche). As she and her husband discuss what a shame it is that [[Paul Atreides]] is dead (as everyone thinks he is at that time), Margot prophetically recounts a Bene Gesserit saying: Do not count a human dead until you've seen his body. And even then you can make a mistake.[[File:230px-Feyd.jpg|thumb|left|Feyd-Rautha, na-baron of House Harkonnen, in the Dune Miniseries (2000)]]

Margot has shared some of her training with her husband since when the Count focused on Paul, he saw with eyes his Lady Margot had trained in the Bene Gesserit way, aware of the mystery and hidden grandeur about this Atreides youth. Hasimir subsequently refuses Emperor Shaddam IV's command that he kill Paul.

Soon after, as Reverend Mother [[Gaius Helen Mohiam]] watches Paul and Feyd-Rautha duel to the death, she comments on the existence of Margot's child by Feyd: If both died that would leave only Feyd-Rautha's bastard daughter, [[Marie Fenring]] still a baby, an unknown, an unmeasured factor, and [[Alia Atreides]].
