As William the Conqueror lay dying in France in 1087, his youngest son, Henry, stayed at his side; the eldest son, Robert Curthose, was in another part of France and unaware of his father’s plight; meanwhile, William Rufus was heading back to England to seize the crown. Beginning with an outline of William I’s life, this is the story of the power struggle between three sons: the crusader who rebelled against his father, and the two who inherited the Conqueror’s throne.
