A Brief Description

The Norman Conquest of England and the Expansion of Plantagenet Power in the 11th and 12th Centuries is a series of articles I have written for History Is Know Magazine for December 2022

The Hundred Year’s War took place between France and England in the 14th and 15th centuries, but the causes of the war are many and complex. Here, Jonathan Riley looks at the Norman conquest of England and the expansion of Plantagenet power in the 11th and 12th Centuries as factors for the later outbreak of war.

William the Conqueror, or William II of Normandy, as shown in the Bayeux Tapestry.

William II of Normandy was nominated heir to the throne of England in 1066 CE. This created unfortunate political conflicts between the thrones of England and France because, under feudal politics, God’s anointed could not bow to other kings or emperors (Bates, 2018). This meant that in practical terms, the relationship between the Dukes of Normandy, who were also kings of England from 1066 to 1204, was that there was an un-codified feudal, political and social relationship between the Dukes of Normandy and the Kings of the Franks.
