Matilda (Maud) was the only surviving legitimate child of [[Henry I, King of England]].  She was born in 1101, generally it is said at Winchester, but other research indicates that she was possibly born at the Royal Palace in Sutton Courtenay (Berkshire).  In something of a political coup for her father, Matilda was betrothed to the new Holy Roman Emperor, Henry V, when she was only eight and went to live there at his court. They were married on 7th Jan 1114. She was twelve and he was thirty-two.  There were no children by this union.

Matilda stayed in Germany for a little over a year after her husband's death, but her father wanted her back in England, recalling her in 1126. She left reluctantly, she had lived in Germany since the age of eight and she loved the people.  And at least some of them, wanted her to stay on and rule them in her husband's place.  But her father insisted and she returned with him to England Sep 1126.
