Reina
Fallecimiento 14 de marzo de 968
Venerado en Iglesia Católica
Festividad 14 de marzo
Santa Matilde o Matilde de Ringelheim (Westfalia, c. 890 – Quedlinburg, 968) fue reina consorte de Francia Orientalis, considerada como santa por la Iglesia Católica.
Hija del conde sajón Dietrich, contrajo matrimonio en 909 con Enrique, duque de Sajonia, más tarde coronado rey y conocido como Enrique I el Pajarero. Después de quedar viuda en 932, su hijo Otón I accedió al trono y fue proclamando emperador. Otón expulsó a Matilde de palacio, ya que pensaba que se había puesto de parte de su hermano Enrique, rebelado contra su hermano. Matilde se dirigió a un convento para orar por la reconciliación de sus hijos.
Tras la reconciliación de sus dos hijos, éstos creyeron que su madre había guardado todo el dinero que ella afirmaba dar en caridad y la presionaron para que les diera el dinero. Finalmente creyeron que era inocente y le dejaron volver a palacio, desde donde se dedicó a realizar acciones de caridad y fundar conventos.
Murió el 14 de marzo de 968, día en que se celebra su festividad.

Note

Her biographers traced her ancestry back to the famed Saxon hero, Widukind (c. 730 - 807).

Notes

Note N135Saint Matilda Von RINGELHEIM
She was the wife of Henry I the Fowler, King of the East Franks, whom she married in 909. Their son, Otto, succeeded his father as Otto I the Great.
Matilda founded many religious institutions including the Abbey of Quedlinburg. She was later canonized.
Their other children were Henry I the Quarrelsome, Gerberga (or Gerberge), Hadwig, Bruno I the Great.
Our knowledge of St. Mathilda's life comes largely from brief mentions in the Res Gestae Saxonicae (Deeds of the Saxons) of the monastic historian Widukind of Corvey, and from two sacred biographies (the vita antiquior and vita posterior) written, respectively, c. 974 and c. 1003.
St. Mathilda was the daughter of the Westphalian count Dietrich and his wife Reinhild, and her biographers traced her ancestry back to the famed Saxon hero, Blessed Widukind (c. 730 - 807). As a young girl, she was sent to the convent of Herford, where her reputation for beauty and virtue is said to have attracted the attention of Duke Otto of Saxony, who betrothed her to his son, Henry the Fowler.
After Henry the Fowler's death in 936, St. Mathilda remained at the court of her son Otto, until a cabal of royal advisors is reported to have accused her of weakening the royal treasury in order to pay for her charitable activities. After a brief exile at the Westphalian monastery of Enger, St. Mathilda was brought back to court at the urging of Otto I's first wife, the Anglo-Saxon princess Queen Edith.
St. Mathilda was celebrated for her devotion to prayer and almsgiving; her first biographer depicted her (in a passage indebted to the sixth-century vita of the Frankish queen Radegund by Venantius Fortunatus) leaving her husband's side in the middle of the night and sneaking off to church to pray. St. Mathilda founded many religious institutions, including the canonry of Quedlinburg, Saxony-Anhalt, a center of Ottonian ecclesiastical and secular life and the burial place of St. Mathilda and her husband, and the convent of Nordhausen, Thuringia, likely the source of at least one of her vitae. She was later canonized, with her cult largely confined to Saxony and Bavaria. St. Mathilda's feast day is on March 14. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
St. Matilda
Matilda of Ringelheim (892 - March 14, 968) was the wife of Henry I the Fowler, King of the East Franks. Their son, Otto, succeeded his father as Otto I the Great.
Matilda was the daughter of Dietrich, a count in Saxony, by his wife Reinhild. She could trace her ancestry to the famed Saxon hero, Widukind. As a young girl, she had been sent to the monastery of Herford, where she had been given a literary education. She became so renowned for her lovely face and good works that she attracted the attention of Duke Otto of Saxony, who betrothed her to his son, Henry. They were married in 909 and had three sons and two daughters:
Otto I, Holy Roman Emperor
Henry I, Duke of Bavaria
Bruno I, Archbishop of Cologne
Gerberge, later queen of France
Hedwig, who married Hugh the Great
After her husband's death, Matilda as a counselor in the court of her son Otto, until a cabal of noblemen accused her of having too much wealth and despoiled her of treasure she was using to support churches and paupers. She left to retire to a nunnery, taking the veil. Her daughter-in-law, Eadgyth, prevailed upon Otto to recall his mother and reinstate her in the court.
