William the Conqueror is one of the most well-known individuals of the Middle Ages. Duke William of Normandy, as he was also known, defeated King Harold Godwinson at the Battle of Hastings to become the first Norman King of England. Much was accomplished during his reign: William built many castles including the Tower of London and Windsor Castle; the first census occurred during William’s reign – a survey of land and property – which became known as the Domesday Book; and the Bayeux Tapestry was created in honor of William’s victory at Hastings.
