Re: Question about documentation source...
- Thank you. I had searched google images for "Matilda of England", but not "Queen". I'll try a few more search strings next time.

With Michael's attribution, I searched on "Golden Book of St. Albans," and got a hit on Karen Larsdatter's site for a completely different illustration with an attribution that told me the manuscript was in the British Library, so I went to the British Library's website and searched on "Matilda." Here she is.
