Matilda of Flanders (1170 – 16 October 1210) was the younger daughter of Marie I, Countess of Boulogne, and her husband Matthew, Count of Boulogne. Matilda was Duchess of Brabant by her marriage to Henry I, Duke of Brabant.

Matilda's parents' marriage was annulled the year she was born and her mother became a Benedictine nun at St. Austrebert, Montreuil and died in 1182. Matilde's father continued to reign as Count of Boulogne until his death in 1173, when her older sister Ida became countess.

At the age of nine, Matilda married Henry I, Duke of Brabant, in 1179. The couple went on to have seven children:[1]

Matilde died in 1210 or 1211. She was buried at St. Peter's in Leuven.[1]
