William the Conqueror Fell Precariously When He Invaded England

Yes, in the morning of Sept 28th, 1066, William, the Duke of Normandy must have looked weak when he fell in the ground in front of his fighting men but he made a nice save when he said, “The earth of England is in my two hands.” William was the first of the Norman invaders to step foot on the English sand but what followed was hundreds of ships, knights on horses, archers and over 8,000 soldiers. The rest is history. One of the most common expressions I see and hear during genealogical research is, “I’m related to William the Conqueror.”
