William I (of England), called The Conqueror (1027-87), first Norman king of England (1066-87), who has been called one of the first modern kings and is generally regarded as one of the outstanding figures in western European history. Born in Falaise, France, William was the illegitimate son of Robert I, duke of Normandy, and Arletta, a tanner's daughter, and is therefore sometimes called William the Bastard.
The original hard-back book was written by one of the most renown and prolific writer-historians of his time, Jacob Abbott of Brunswick, Maine. It was one of a set of 32 volumes authored by Jacob and John Abbott, brothers, in the mid- to late-1800s. The set was re-published in the early 1900s, and not again until 2000, when GoldenWest Marketing undertook the project of re-printing 8 of these rare and genealogically valuable books.
The 292 pages of the original hard-bound book have been photocopied and printed two to a page and placed in a soft cover with a plastic-comb binding, affordable book.
