The Normans conquered England in 1066, marking the end of the Anglo-Saxon monarchy and aristocracy and forcing a change in culture and politics. This is the dramatic story of William the Conqueror and his successors.
Under William the Conqueror in England, the Normans began an aggressive campaign to intimidate and control by building castles and cathedrals all over England. At the same time they moved into Scotland through alliances, and Wales through conquest. In 1169, the Normans landed in Ireland.
In the 11th century the Normans spread south, causing a deep rift between Christianity and Islam that is still being felt today. They created powerful states where different cultures lived together as in Sicily. However, they were at the heart of the Crusades as well.
