William the Conqueror

Yale University Press

This chapter discusses the events surrounding the last of William's conquests and the consolidation of his empire. Notably, this period characterised profound changes in England, as well as a pervasive sense of illegitimacy to his rule as the balance of power shifted. By late 1073, William had established a position in England and across the British Isles that replicated that of the strongest of his pre-1066 predecessors and he had regained control over Maine. The subsequent period until early 1075 is probably the longest period of sustained peace that he experienced between 1066 and his death and is arguably the high-water mark of his whole career.
