William the Conqueror crowned King of England

Westminster Abbey, London, UK

After further military efforts, William was crowned king on Christmas day, 1066, in London. He made arrangements for the governance of England in early 1067 before returning to Normandy. Several unsuccessful rebellions followed, but William's hold was mostly secure on England by 1075, allowing him to spend the majority of his reign in continental Europe.
