When Edward the Confessor died, he was succeeded by Harold Goodwin instead of William. Angry, he invaded England to enforce his claim.

As he gathered his fleet onto the French coast, their plans to invade was delayed for several weeks. On October 14, 1066, the two armies met in the Battle of Hastings. During the battle, King Harold was killed, along with his two brothers. William was crowned King of England.

During his reign as King, he was known to grab up land, distributing the property to his Norman followers.

William the Conqueror was born in 1028 in Falaise, Normandy, France. He was also known as William the Bastard. On September 9, 1087, he died in Rouen, France.
