Synopsis

Born the illegitimate son of the future Duke of Normandy, William must fight the King of France to regain his Duchy.

Spurned in love by the lovely Princess Matilda, William argues hard to make her his bride. Thwarted by the Saxon Earl Harold of a promise of the throne of England, William the Conqueror sails to Hastings to claim the King's crown and sceptre for his own.

Written in Heyer's inimitable style, The Conqueror dives deep into William's complex character, his ruthless ambition and both the physical and mental battles he must endure in order to claim King Harold's crown and sceptre for his own.

The Conqueror
One of the finest fact/fiction historical novels I've ever read. The description of the Battle of Hastings is peerless and puts you in the thick of it!
