King William I "The Conqueror" 04 Crusades: The Investiture Controversy 2 months ago   07:08

Episode 1 of the Channel Five series Kings & Queens, which looks at the life and reign of William I of England also known as "The Conqueror".

The series looks at key monarchs in the history of England and gives some simplified facts about their reigns. This is a good series for those who have little prior knowledge of English History.
