Theophania married Sir Gilbert UMFRAVILLE Earl of Angus, jure uxoris in 1243.1 (Sir Gilbert UMFRAVILLE Earl of Angus, jure uxoris was born about 1200, died before 13 March 1245 2 and was buried in 1245 in Hexham Abbey, Northumberland, England 1.)

  Marriage Notes:

"MATILDA, Countess of Angus in her own right, married in 1243 Sir Gilbert Umfraville, a powerful Northumbrian baron, who through her became Earl of Angus. He was not her first husband ....
Her second husband has been handed down to posterity as the 'famous baron' and 'the guardian and matchless ornament of the North of England'. He is named in 1244 as one of the principal of the Scottish magnates, but he died before 13 March of the following year. The Countess received her terce as a widow from each of his manors, and as a capital messuage 'Gilbert's houses in Otterburn.' During one or other of her widowhoods, the Countess Matilda confirmed the grants formerly made to the Abbey of Arbroath and the priests of Kirriemuir. She has not been found on record after 1246."

from Scots Peerage

"She (Theophania) died before 1243, in which year he married Maud/Mathilda, daughter of Malcolm, earl of Angus and widow of John Comyn. This marriage gave the Umfravilles the earldom of Angus and castle of Redcastle, which passed to the only son of the marriage, Gilbert (III) (d.1307)"
