The Lovereading4Kids commentEveryone knows that William the Conqueror won the Battle of Hastings in 1066 after King Harold had been shot in the eye with an arrow. It is all recorded in that great historical document, the Bayeux Tapestry. But who was William? And how did he come to be the leader of the Norman invasion that was to change the shape of English history? The rages to riches life story of a great leader is enjoyable as well as giving a strong sense of the time in which he lived.
