The only near certainty is that it would presumably have been the oldest available daughter who was betrothed to Harold.Matthew Paris does not name her but lists her fourth among the daughters of King William, while distinguishing her from the fifth daughter betrothed to "Aldefonso Galici regi", which, if the order of names is significant, indicates that Adelaide was older than her two named sisters.She founded the abbey of la Trinit at Caen, as confirmed by an undated manuscript which records the death "pridie nonas julias" of "abbatissam Mathildem" in the 54th year in which she held the position and names "Mathildem Anglorum reginam, nostri cnobii fondatricem, Adilidem, Mathildem, Constantiam, filias eius" heading the list of the names of nuns at the abbey.Her husband appointed Mathilde as his regent in Normandy when he left to invade England, and again after he returned to England after visiting Normandy in 1067: Orderic Vitalis records that, when King William returned to England, , he appointed Mathildi conjugi su filioque suo Rodberto adolescenti to govern Normandy (principatum Neustri), adding that the king took with him Rogerium de Monte-Gomerici whom he had appointed as tutorem Normanni..sua conjuge when he had left for England for the first time.Duke Guillaume branded Harold a perjurer and appealed to Pope Alexander II for support.After receiving a papal banner in response to his request, William gathered a sizable army during summer 1066 in preparation for invasion.The supposed betrothal to Robert of Apulia (which would have to refer to Robert "Guiscard" Duke of Apulia) is unrecorded in the numerous other sources dealing with his life and is probably pure fantasy.This does not instil confidence with respect to the historical accuracy of the whole passage, but if it is correct the daughter in question would presumably have been Agatha who was probably the daughter of King William betrothed to "Amfursio regi Gallici" (see above).
The minute description of the country contained in the Domesday Book, completed in 1086, enabled King William to create an effective tax base .Orderic Vitalis names Adelizam et Constantiam, Ceciliam et Adalam as the daughters of Willermus Normanni dux and his wife Mathildem Balduini ducis Flandrensium filiam, neptem..sorore Henrici regis Francorum.The sources are contradictory regarding the name of the daughter who was betrothed to Harold, as well as the timing of her death.He succeeded in 1072 as , son of RAOUL [III] le Grand Comte de Valois & his first wife Aelis de Bar-sur-Aube (-[30 Sep/1 Oct] 1080 Rome, bur 1082 Rome St Peter).The Vita Simonis records a ficitional speech of William I King of England in which he offers his (unnamed) daughter's hand to Simon, specifying that she had previously been betrothed to "regis Hispaniarum Anfursi et Roberti principis Apuli".
There is no basis for assessing her order of birth among the other known daughters of the king. Richardum..Henricum, adding that William succeeded to regno Angli.
