Kings and Queens of Great Britain, Genealogical Chart, Anne Taute and Romilly Squire, Taute, 1990: "William Atheling, Mar Matilda Daughter of Fulk V Count of Anjou, Died 1154."
The Political History of England, Vol II, George Burton Adams Longmans Green and Co, 1905, Ch VII, p158:
During Lent of the next year, 1113, Henry made formal peacewith both his enemies, the king of France and the Count of Anjou. The peace with the latter was first concluded. It was very possibly Fulk's refusal to recognize Henry's overlordship of Maine that occasioned the war. To this he now assented. Hedid homage for the county, and received investiture of it from the hand of the king. He also promised the hand of his daughter Matilda to Henry's son William. Henry, on his side, restored to favour the Norman allies of Fulk..."
Ch VIII, p166:  "...This was a year of misfortunes for [Henry I]. The Count of Anjou, the king of France, the Count of Flanders, each in turn invaded some part of Normandy, and gainded advantages which Henry could not prevent. Baldwin of Flanders,however, returned home with a wound from an arrow, of which he shortly died...The close of the year saw no turn of the tide in favour of Henry. Evreux was captured in October by Amaury of Montfort, and afterwards Alencon by the Count of Anjou."
p172:  "The death of the young William was a signal to set Henry's enemies in motion again. But they did not begin at once. Henry's position was still unweakened. Very likely his speedy marriage was a notice to the world that he did not propose to modify in the least his earlier plans. Probably also the absence of Fulk of Anjou, who had gone on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem soon after his treaty of 1119 with Henry, was a cause of delay, for the natural first move would be for him to demand a return of his daughter and her dowry. Fulk's stay was not long in the land of which he was in a few years to be king, and on his return he at once sent for his daughter, probably in 1121. She returned home, but as late as December, 1122, there was still trouble between him and Henry in regard to her dowry, which Henry no doubt was reluctant to surrender."
