Character description

Maud or Maude or Matilda (1102–1167) was the rightful heir to the throne of her father, King Henry I of England, but never permitted to rule. The struggle with rival claimants launched a civil war in England that was so cruel, it was remembered for centuries. Maud was an Empress by her first marriage to the Holy Roman Emperor Henry V. With her second husband, Geoffrey Plantagenet, Count of Anjou, she had a son who become King Henry II of England.
