William the Conqueror
I, William, am now the king of England
On Christmas Day 1066, William assumed the crown of England after defeating another person who also wanted power at the Battle of Hastings. He had the Domesday census taken to learn about his kingdom. This helped William and future kings build a successful system of collecting taxes, which would help them build up their kingdom.
William created the Domesday book. It was a census that counted all of the people and property of England. William used it to collect taxes to help the kingdom of England grow.
