  Research Notes:

Her parentage is recorded by Orderic Vitalis. The Genealogica comitum Buloniensium names Mathilde daughter of "Eustachius, frater Balduini regis Iheruslame" and his wife "Mariam filiam regis Scotiæ", also recording her marriage with "Stephano, filio Stephani Blesensis comitis".

She succeeded her father as Ctss de Boulogne. "Stephanus comes Bolonie et Morethonii et Mathildis comitissa" confirmed the possessions of the abbey of Samer by charter dated 1141 (presumably misdated because of the donors’ titles), subscribed by "…Eustachius de Fielnes, Willelmus et Rogerus fratres sui…".

She was crowned Queen Consort of England at Westminster Abbey 22 Mar 1136.

Robert of Torigny records the death in 1152 of "Matildis uxor Stephani regis Anglorum" and in a later passage her burial "in monasterio Fasseham", recording that she had founded the abbey. 1

  Marriage Information:

Mathilde married Étienne DE BLOIS, King Stephen of England, son of Cte Étienne III DE BLOIS et de Chartres... and Adela DE NORMANDIE, Regent of Blois, in 1125 in Westminster, London, Middlesex, England.
