1066 & the Norman Conquest

The story of the Norman Conquest of England does not begin in 1066. Rather, it begins with events that happened during the reigns of King Knute the Mighty, in England and Duke William the Bastard, Duke of Normandy. The Norman Conquest was a pivotal event in English history and all subsequent developments in the English monarchy, English government, society, language and outlook are coloured by it.
