The Battle of Hastings was fought on 14 October 1066. It took place 7 miles nothwest of Hastings and lasted from about 9am to dusk. Early efforts of the invaders to break the English battle lines had little effect. The Normans then adopted the tactic of pretending to retreat and as the English troo0ps pursued them their cavalry attacked. This weakened Harold's army. Later in the day Harold was killed and the battle was over.

William was crowned King on Christmas Day 1066 at Westminster Abbey. He died from injuries after falling from his horse on 9 September 1087.

William I, also known as William the Conqueror, was the first Norman King of England. In 1086, he dommissioned a great survey that detailed the land and resources held by the King and his people, known as the Domesday book.
