Description:
Marie of Boulogne (1136 – 1182 in St Austrebert, Montreuil, France) was the Countess of Boulogne from 1159 to 1170.

Marie was born to King Stephen of England and his wife Matilda I, Countess of Boulogne. At an early age, she was apparently placed in a convent, but she became her childless brother William's heir in 1159. Matthew of Alsace (c.1130-1173) abducted the heiress from her convent in 1160, and made her his wife in defiance of her religious vows, thus becoming Count of Boulogne and co-ruler. The marriage was annulled in 1169, and she re-entered the religious life at St. Austrebert, Montreuil, where she died in 1182. Her former husband Matthew continued to reign as Count of Boulogne until his death in 1173, when their daughter Ida became the Countess. Marie's second daughter Mathilde of Flanders married Henry I, Duke of Brabant in 1179 and they produced six children.
