Leader of the Normans, precursors to the modern French. Was initially known as "The Bastard". Led the invasion of England in 1066, won the Battle of Hastings. Relevant because after the fall of Rome, England sort of got sucked into the Scandanavian backwater after the Saxons showed up. William effectively brought England back into the European mainstream, paving the way for it to being the great powerhouse it eventually became.

Brought civilization, learning and government to an anarchic, illiterate and superstitious little island that no one had really cared about much before.

Even today most of anyone who actually accomplishes anything of note there is descended from him and his followers, not the island's original inhabitants.

the normans were NOT the precursors to the modern french. the normans were vikings that hung out in normandy long enough to pick up the language.

This.

Politically and culturally William the Conqueror brought England closer to France and thus mainstream Europe and the Pope.

William also built a fuckton of castles in England.
