9 England in the Middle Ages – A great ppt to review
In 1066 England was invaded for the last time by William the Conqueror from Normandy.
He fought and won the Battle of Hastings which gave him the title King of England
It was William’s planned invasion and mounted cavalry that helped him win the battle.
William’s success also brought the Feudal System that existed in Europe to Britain. It allowed a King to govern large kingdoms through local Lords or vassals. (Trickey)
