For hundreds of years before 1066, England had been ruled by Anglo-Saxon
kings. When Edward "the Confessor" died in 1066, William of Normandy saw his
chance for a successful invation of England. He built a fleet, attracted many
knights, and obtained the pope's blessing. He gained victory at the Battle of
Hastings and was crowned King of England on Christmas of 1066.
During the next few years, William presided over a gradual redistribution of
land in England. Saxon rebellions led to the confiscation of lands, which the
Norman Barons received. As a result of this Norman invation, the English
people today are of both Norman and Anglo-Saxon extraction.
