NORMANDY HERITAGE TOURS

WILLIAM THE CONQUEROR

Born at Falaise in 1027 or 1028 - hard to say precisely since nobody has managed to find his birth certificate - this remarkable ruler we came to know thanks to the epitet 'the conqueror' was, in fact, the bastard son of the duke of Normandy. His life story is better than any soap opera while his legacy, almost a thousand years on, can still be seen and felt today, capturing the imagination of the visitor travelling to Caen, Falaise or Bayeux.
