  Noted events in her life were:

fact. Empress Matilda (sometimes Maud or Maude; later Countess of Anjou and Lady of the English; February 1102 \endash 10 Sept 1167) was the daughter and dispossessed heir of Henry I of England. She was married to Henry V, and then to Geoffrey V, Count of Anjou, by whom she became the mother of Henry II of England.
Matilda was the first female ruler, although uncrowned and for a brief time, of the Kingdom of England. Her failure to secure that rule meant that her temporary and disputed period of reign in 1141 was extremely brief. She is often excluded from lists of English monarchs and even the official British monarchy website excludes her, listing Stephen of England as king from 1135-1154.
As many of her contemporaries or near contemporaries were also called Matilda in Latin texts, she is sometimes called Maude to distinguish her. This is merely a modernised spelling of the Norman-French form of her name, Mahaut.
