Constance was one the younger daughters of William and Conqueror and his wife, Matilda of Flanders. She held the title of Princess of England by birth and Duchess of Brittany through her marriage.

She married Alain IV de Fergent of Bretagne, Duke of Brittany, in 1086 in Caen, but died in 1090, possibly poisoned by her servants at Bretagne. She was the favorite of her mother and considered to be the most accomplished and gifted of her siblings.

She was buried at the Church of St Melans, Rhedon, Bretagne, France. Her tomb was opened in 1672, where fragments of her woolen wrapping and a leaden cross engraved with her epitaph, the name of her father and husband, and the date of her death could still be read.
