NAME ROOT:
*MAHTI- / *MAGINą *HILDIZ > MAHTHILT > MAHTHILDIS
MEANING:
This name derives from Old High German name “Mahthilt, Mahthildis”, composed of two Ancient Germanic elements: “*mahti- / *maginą” (ability, power, might, main) plus “*hildiz” (battle, fight). 1) Saint Mathilda (~ 895–968) was the wife of King Henry I of Germany, the first ruler of the Saxon Ottonian (or Liudolfing) dynasty, thereby Duchess consort of Saxony from 912 and German Queen from 919 until 936. 2) Matilda of Flanders (~1031–1083) was the wife of William the Conqueror and, as such, Queen consort of the Kingdom of England. She bore William nine children, including two kings, William II and Henry I. 3) Empress Matilda (~1102–1167), also known as Empress Maude, was the claimant to the English throne during the civil war known as the Anarchy. The daughter of King Henry I of England, she moved to Germany as a child when she married the future Holy Roman Emperor Henry V.
