    Notes 
    • Maud (Matilda) de Braose was also known as the Lady of la Haie and to theWelsh as Moll Walbee. Married to William de Braose, the "Ogre ofAbergavenny", she was a significant warrior in her own right. Her longdefence of Pain's Castle when it was besieged by the Welsh earned it thename "Matilda's Castle". The local people saw her as a supernaturalcharacter. She was said to have built Hay Castle single handed in onenight, carrying the stones in her apron.

      Maud's stoneWhen one fell out and lodged in her slipper she picked itout and flung it to land in St Meilig's churchyard, three miles awayacross the River Wye at Llowes. The nine foot high standing stone canstill be seen inside the church.

      The final fall of her husband may owe a lot to her hasty reply to KingJohn when he requested her son William as a hostage in 1208. She refusedon the grounds that John had murdered his nephew Arthur whom he shouldhave protected. The dispute between John and the de Braose family led toMaud dying of starvation in Windsor Castle along with her son, while herhusband, stripped of all his lands, died the following year in exile inFrance.
