William the Bastard, base-born son of the Duke of Normandy, must fight the King of France to regain his Duchy.

Spurned in love by the lovely Princess Matilda, the fighting Duke dares to take a whip to her in her own father's palace, before making her his bride.

Thwarted by the Saxon Earl Harold of a promise of the throne of England, William the Conqueror sails to Hastings to claim the King's crown and sceptre for his own.

“The Conqueror”

One of the finest fact/fiction historical novels I've ever read. The description of the Battle of Hastings is peerless and puts you in the thick of it!
