Queen Matilda

Matilda is sometimes called England's forgotten queen. She came the throne in 1135. However there was another claimant to the throne and they fought a long civil war till 1154. So Matilda never ruled over the whole of England. Nevertheless she deserves to remember as the first queen to reign in England. www.localhistories.org/normans
