Norman dynasty


Norman dynasty

Norman dynasty is the usual designation for the English monarchs which immediately followed the Norman conquest and lasted until the Plantagenet dynasty came to power in 1154. It included William the Conqueror and his heirs down through 1135. After that it was disputed between William's grandchildren, Matilda and Stephen of the House of Blois (or Blesevin dynasty).

The Norman monarchs were:
*William I, 1066–1087
*William II, 1087–1100
*Henry I, 1100–1135
*Matilda, 1141
*Stephen, 1135–1154
