Mathilde von Ringelheim
Birth: unknown
Death: Mar. 14

German Queen and Saint. She was raised at the convent of Herfort where her grandmother was the abbess. In 909 she married duke Heinrich of Saxony and gave birth to three boys and two girls. She was crowned queen together with her husband in 919. After his death she retired to her dowager territories. She supported her younger sons claims for the throne when he rebelled against his older brother Otto. Heinrich was unable to find enough supporters among the nobles and was later defeated. Due to her intercession he received the title of Duke of Bavaria later anyway. She founded the monasteries in Pölde, Engern and Nordhausen and spent her live almsgiving. She led the monastery of Quedlinburg that she had also founded as her husbands burial place for more than 30 years. She was succeeded by her granddaughter as abbess. Soon after her death she was venerated as a saint. She's portrayed as almsgiving queen and her feast day is celebrated on March 14. (bio by: Lutetia)
