Daughter of Henry II of England, she married Henry the Lion in 1168, uniting the Angevin and Welf dynasties, despite her husband's occasional periods of banishment. Bertran de Born extolled Matilda; her pious generosity beautified the church at Brunswick. Her son Otto IV was crowned emperor in 1209.
