The Genealogica Comitum Flandriæ Bertiniana names (in order) "Balduinum Haanoniensem, et Rodbertum cognomento postea Iherosolimitanum, et Matilde uxorem Guillelmi regis Anglorum" as the children of "Balduinum Insulanum [et] Adelam". Orderic Vitalis records the marriage of “Willermus Normanniæ dux” and “Mathildem Balduini ducis Flandrensium filiam, neptem...ex sorore Henrici regis Francorum”. Florence of Worcester records that "comitissa Mahtilda de Normannia" came to England 23 Mar  and was crowned "die Pentecostes [11 May]" by Aldred Archbishop of York. Orderic Vitalis also records that she was crowned queen of England 11 May 1068, presumably at Westminster Abbey or Winchester Cathedral although this appears to be unrecorded. Queen Matilda acted as regent in Normandy during her husband's absences in England.
The necrology of the abbey of Saint-Denis records the death "IV Non Nov" of "Matildis Anglorum regina". Florence of Worcester records the death "IV Non Nov" in  of "regina Mahtilda" in Normandy and her burial at Caen. 1
