Matilda of Flanders
Birth: 1030
Departement du Nord
Nord-Pas-de-Calais, France
Death: Nov. 3, 1083
Caen
Departement du Calvados
Basse-Normandie, France

British monarch, Queen consort of William the Conquerer. Daughter of Baldwin V, Count of Flanders and Adela Capet, she married William in 1051. While her husband invaded England, she took over ruling Normandy in his absence. She was crowned Queen of England in 1068, though she spent little time there. She was known for her formidable temper, and William was apparently faithful to her. She had 9 children, seven of whom survived. She died in Normandy after a long illness, and was buried in the abbey she founded. It is reported that William became tyrannical after her death. (bio by: Kristen Conrad)
