  • William became king of England on Christmas day of 1066 after the Battle of Hastings. William took firm control over his lands, he made the Domesday Census which was his way to learn about his Kingdom and be able to tax his people.
  • Edward I
  • Henry II expanded the system of royal justice, laid the basis for common law, and also began the jury system. The jury system created by Henry II is the ancestor of today's jury system.
