The Norman conquest of England (in Britain, often called the Norman Conquest or the Conquest) was the 11th-century invasion and occupation of England by an army of Norman, Breton, Flemish, and men from other provinces of the Kingdom of France, all led by the Duke of Normandy later styled William the Conqueror.
