WILLIAM THE CONQUEROR
The memorable characters of History
An episode from the series DESTINIES
October 14, 1066, is one of the most important dates in the history of Europe. During the Battle of Hastings, William the Conqueror, Duke of Normandy, seized the throne of England.
This episode recounts the epic story of this medieval ruler who gathered a whole people behind him to achieve the impossible: cross the English Channel and conquer the British Isles.
After his overwhelming victory, the newly crowned William I of England profoundly changed the country, at times displaying unrestrained cruelty.
