    Coheiress of father, it seems.
    ---
    1271-74 Sovereign Countess Mathilde von Saarbrücken (Germany)
    According to a treaty her father, Simon III had made with the Bishop of Metz in 1227 first his oldest daughter Laurette and in event that she should die without heirs Mathilde should inherit the county. But Bishop Lorenz claimed that female succession did not apply for fiefs of the Prince-Bishopcy of Metz, and therefore he apparently refused to hail Mathilde as Countess, and had her excommunicated. She was on good terms with Duke Friedrich von Lothringen, and he supported her in her fight, but the situation was not cleared by her death in 1274. First married to Lord Simon II de Commercy and secondly to Count Amadeus von Mömpelgard (d. 1271). She was succeeded by her oldest son, Simon IV (d. 1309). Her second son was Count Walther von Mömpelgard (d. 1306). Mathilde (d. 1274).
