William, Duke of Normandy had been promised the English Throne by King Edward the Confessor but When Edward died the three men wanting to claim the throne didn't know who was to be his successor. Harold was crowned king and was soon faced with two different invasions by people who also claimed his throne. He defeated Harald of Norway at the Battle of Stamford Bridge. William then defeated him at the battle of Hastings. William then became King of England and has ever since been known as William the Conquerer. This all happened in 1066.

He was the first English monarch and he ruled from 1066-1087.
