BIOGRAPHY Matthieu was born about 1138, the son of Thierry d'Alsace, count of Flanders, and Sibylla d'Anjou. He was a supporter of Henry 'the Young King', son of King Henry II, and received lands in England. Before 1160 he married Marie de Blois, daughter of Stephen de Blois, king of England, and Matilda, comtesse de Boulogne et de Lens. When Marie's brother William II was killed in battle in 1159, she became his heiress as comtesse de Boulogne, and Matthieu became count of Boulogne in her right. They had two daughters, Ida and Mathilde, who would both have progeny, but the marriage ended in annulment in 1169. Before her marriage she had been abbess of Romsey when she succeeded her brother, which was the ground given for the annulment. She returned to a convent in Saint-Austrebert, where she died on 25 July 1182. Shortly after the annulment Matthieu, still count of Boulogne, married Eleonore de Vermandois, widow of Etienne II de Sancerre, seigneur de Saint-Brisson, Châtillon-sur-Loing, and daughter of Raoul I 'le Vaillant', comte de Vermandois et de Valois, and his third wife Lauretta of Flanders. However but this marriage did not result in progeny. Matthieu died on 25 July 1173, fighting at the siege of Drincourt (now Neufchatel-en-Bray), in the 1173-4 revolt of Henry II of England's sons, under the leadership of his brother Philippe, count of Flanders. Wounded by a crossbow bolt, he did not recover. He was succeeded by his daughter Ida.
