Also he fought in the battle of Hastings which occurred on 14 October 1066 during the Norman conquest of England.

Importance

William the Conqueror made many important decisions such as he required these men to provide him with military service in return for their land and to owe him ultimate loyalty. He commissioned a monument to centralized power. we should care about this person because with out him we wouldn't have he record of a British census and land survey in 1085-1086 ordered by William the Conqueror. The most important accomplishment of William the conqueror is the doomsday book because we would have no way to understand everything that went on.

Importance

King John won battles against Wales, Scotland and England. He also made the navy(England's fighting ships) very strong. John made sure that trials in courts were fairer and made England richer. we should care about King John because he wouldn't understand the concept of to much taxing. And I say this because he also taxed his barons £600, 6 times more than the usual amount. king john was a good king because he managed to get most of the castles back.

JOAN OF ARC

Biographical Info

Joan of arc nicknamed "The Maid of Orléans," was born in 1412 in Domrémy, Bar, France. A national heroine of France, Joan of Arc led the French army to victory over the British at Orléans, at age 18. Captured a year later, Joan was burned by the English and their French collaborators as a heretic. She was canonized as a Roman Catholic saint 500 years later, on May 16, 1920.

Memorable moments

The crown of France during Joan’s time was in dispute between the dauphin, Charles (later Charles VII), and the English king, Henry VI. Henry's armies were occupying much of the northern part of the kingdom with the Burgundians (loyal to the Duke of Burgundy and allied to the English), and the dauphin's state was more tenuous yet, since, five years after his father's death, he still had not been crowned king of France.Joan's village was on the frontier between the two factions, and villagers had already had to abandon their homes. Led by the voices of the saints, in May 1428 Joan traveled to Vaucouleurs, where she asked for permission to join the dauphin and his cause. She and her visions were promptly dismissed, and the 16-year-old Joan went home. The next year, undeterred, she returned

Importance

That April, the dauphin provided Joan with several military men, and she was joined in her fight by her brothers Jean and Pierre. Her standard was painted with an image of Christ in judgment, and the banner she would carry into battle bore the name of Jesus. When questioned about the sword she would wield, Joan said that it would be discovered in the church of Sainte-Catherine-de-Fierbois, and one was indeed found there.Her ensuing strategy was underpinned with rejecting the guarded, nonaggressive strategy that characterized French leadership during the war before her arrival. The cautious approach clearly had not been effective, and Joan sought to change the approach and the tide of the war. On May 4, led by Joan, the French attacked and captured the fortress of Saint Loup, and the next day Joan led a march to a second fortress called Saint Jean le Blanc. Soon in front of the war council, Joan demanded another offensive, but she was rebuked and the city gates locked to prevent her from launching an attack. But Joan and a group of soldiers and townsmen unbolted the gate, and she led a charge against the main English stronghold of Les Tourelles on May 7. During the siege, Joan was shot through the neck with an arrow, but she quickly returned to the fight, her unstoppable spirit bolstering the French resolve until the English capitulated.
