House of Normandy
The House of Normandy kings were named after the land in France of which they were Dukes. They claimed a right to the throne of England through their relationship to Edward the Confessor. Although the Pope recognised the right of the first Norman king, William I, to the throne, his landing in England is commonly referred to as the Norman Invasion and William is known as 'the Conqueror'.
The House of Normandy ruled England from 1066-1154, with the final years of the dynasty being marked by civil war. Scroll down to find information, colouring pages, notebooking pages and mini booklets for the Norman monarchs.
