  • Notes 
    • Many sources, including the usually-reliable Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, assert that she was a natural daughter of Henry I, but there appears to be no actual contemporary evidence for it. A fairly detailed discussion of this can be found in this thread on SGM; despite the participants' disagreements, it appears that they all acknowledge that no actual proof exists showing such a relationship.

      On 22 Feb 2019, Peter Stewart pointed out that there is also no factual basis for asserting that her name was Elizabeth.
