His legacy. (10/10)

List item

Possibly one of the most famous, if not THE most famous English monarch of all time, William’s conquest saw the Anglo-Saxon language replaced with a hybrid of Anglo and French, known today as ‘English’, as well as the introduction of many aspects of French culture. New architecture, new cuisine, the Feudal system and England’s hot-and-cold relationship with France all trace their origins back to him. Rightly renowned as one of the greatest soldiers and rulers of the Middle Ages, William’s enduring legacy is one that will certainly never be forgotten.
