I totally agree that the Norman Conquest was the definingevent in English History because of many reason.
The outcome was good comparedto what was happening before the battle. With the Conquest being over theenemies was not able to invade England with William the Conqueror being the newking. At the end of the Norman Conquestit ended a complicated drama that started years earlier. The complicated dramawas something that was going on for a long time, so it was the final act afterthe Conquest. The Norman Conquest was the defining event in English historybecause the outcome was good, enemies was not able to invade after Williambecame the new king of England, and it ended a complicated drama that startedyears earlier.
Before the Norman Conquest there was drama between Williamand Harold because William was supposed to be crowned king instead of Harold.So after Harold being killed William was crowned as the new king of England.The drama was really squashed by doing this battle and the crown being crownedto someone else. The battle was called the “Battle of the hasting”. Altogetherto me the Conquest was the defining event in English history because after itwas done a lot of changes were made which is good.
After the Conquest the enemies was not able to invadeEngland. William risked his life and career to end this war. The memory ofWilliam duke was always remembered in a good way. William invaded England tobecome king and claim the throne from Harold that he was promised. When Williamgot to England he brought approximately 7,000 troops and cavalry. In additionthe conquest created an ongoing link between the islands of Great Britain.
Theconnections can be seen in the development of English culture, language,history, and economics. Harold ended up dead at the end of the battle with theNormans and England.The outcome of the Norman Conquest was good and beneficialbecause the battle was over and England earned a new king. England was reallygoing through it before the Norman Conquest. Yet The Norman Conquest did bringsome minor consequences along the way. The victory destroyed England’s linkswith Scandinavia, which brought the country into close contact with continentespecially France.
William duke was the one who led the Conquest 951 years ago.In addition, the Conquest occurred in 1066 and was the 11th centuryinvasion and occupation of England. Even with the minor consequences, I stillagree that the Norman Conquest was the defining event in English history. TheConquest started in 1066 and ended in 1072.
A lot of things mentioned in the Normans video led me toagree that the Norman conquest was the defining event in English history. Theoutcome was good after the conquest because the enemies was not able to invadewith William being the king. Norman conquest was the important event in Englishhistory, which was the key thing to me agreeing. In addition, the conquest wasfinal act of a complicated drama that started years later.
I totally agree thatthe Norman Conquest was the defining event because the outcome was good, enemieswas not able to invade with William being the king, and ended a complicateddrama started years earlier.
