AFAIK Matilda never called herself Queen - the only title which she used in England was 'Lady of the English'.

Maybe she thought Queen would be a step-down after being Empress?

Generally speaking Stephen is considered the King on the lists one sees.
The war between the two would be considered to have settled the basic
rule for succession to the throne in her favor (her father was the
younger brother of his mother) but now that rule has been changed;
note that the present Queen,though deriving her official line of
descent through Matilda,IS among the numerous descendants of
King Stephen's elder brothers.

The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.

And she also descends from King Stephen himself, as through his daughter Mary, he was an ancestor of Philippa of Hainault, the queen of Edward III.
