So I started reading the book "Stephen and Matilda" about their 12th century civil war.

It raises the question "How many 12th century women can be named Matilda?" And the answer, apparently is "All of them."

Some of them were called Eleanor….

Yes, all of them were called Matilda. But some Matildas were also known as Maud.

Please see '1066 And All That' for details…
