Death and Legacy

Death and Legacy

(p.483) Chapter 13 Death and Legacy
William the Conqueror

David Bates

Yale University Press

This chapter studies the death and legacies of William the Conqueror. It first describes William's final illness, death, and burial, and the events that happened in the aftermath of his death, particularly the issue of royal succession. The chapter then traces further developments in Normandy and England following his rule, and the notable changes that had occurred within these territories as a result of his rule. Finally, the chapter turns to an assessment of the significance of William's career overall, contextualising his life and achievements within a multicultural world in which there were multiple diversities and many common factors, where William the Conqueror's life remains only part of a much larger story.

Keywords:   William the Conqueror, William's life and career, William's death, succession, Normandy, England, multicultural world, William's legacy
