The Genealogia Ducum Brabantiæ Heredum Franciæ names "Machtildis" as oldest of the four daughters of "Henricus…secundus dux" and his wife Maria, and her first husband "Roberto comitis Attrebatensi, filio Regis Francie", their children "Robertum comitem Attrebatensem et unam filiam", and her second husband "comiti Sancti Pauli" referring to, but not naming, their sons and daughters.

The Chronicle of Guillaume de Nangis records the marriage in 1238 "apud Compendium" of "sanctus Ludovicus rex Franciæ Robertum fratrum suum" and "filiæ ducis Brabantiæ Mathildi".
