William of Normandy invaded England in 1066. Known as The Battle of Hastings by the Normans, it was referred to by the English as the Battle of Senlac. King Harold had just defeated an attack from Herald Hardratta of Denmark. King Harold's brother, Tostig had fought on the side of the enemy against England, hoping to rule in his brother's place. The invaders were defeated & King Harold then took his troops south to Hastings to meet the attack of William. At first, the battle went against The Norman invaders. However, after 3 days of hard fighting, King Harold was killed & William won the Battle.
Like any enemy, William was feared and dnot welcome on English soil. Despite this, he was a fair and capable ruler who employed justice for the people of England.
