Norman Conquest Game
This Norman Conquest game is set in 1066 when the Normans invaded England and fought the English at the Battle of Hastings
starting the conquest and occupation of England over the coming years. The conquest was
facilitated by the then English King Harold being forced to take his troops north to fight off a
Norwegian invasion of England by King Harald Hardrada and whilst the English defeated him, it left the south coast exposed with Duke William II of Normandy
taking advantage of the situation by landing his troops in support of his tenuous claim to the English throne. At the Battle of Hastings King Harold was defeated and killed, William, now known as William the Conqueror, seized lands held by the barons of old, build castles and subjugated his new realm to
Norman rule. Details of how to play this Norman Conquest game are within the game itself.
