Matilda (English, "Maud") (1103-67), daughter of Henry I. of England, married (1115) the Emperor Henry V., and fourteen years later Geoffrey, Count of Anjou, by whom she became the mother of Henry II., whose rights during his minority she stoutly upheld against Stephen, being aided in this by her half-brother Robert of Gloucester. A compromise at last, settled the dispute between them. Matilda was also the name of the wife of William the Conqueror, chiefly remembered for the Bayeux Tapestry and the "church she founded at Bayeux.
