Will of Matilda, Queen to William the Conqueror, Needlework Bequest (d.1082) (Will, 1083)

“I give to the Abbey of the Holy Trinity my tunic worked at Winchester by Alderet’s wife, and the mantle embroidered with gold, which is in my chamber, to make a cope. Of my two golden girdles, I give that which is ornamented with emblems for the purpose of suspending the lamp before the great altar.”
