Matilda is a fictional character in the novel The Monk. Matilda is an instrument of Satan in female form, who orchestrates the downfall of the pious, well-respected monk Ambrosio. Once satisfied by her, he is overcome with carnal desire for the innocent Antonia. Using magic spells Matilda aids him in seducing Antonia, whom he later rapes and kills.
