After the Normans defeated King Harold and his Anglo-Saxon army at the Battle of Hastings in 1066, they set up castles to control the native population, and four-fifths of all England’s land changed ownership. However, despite initial Norman success, it was fully two centuries before the Anglo-Norman kings managed to penetrate the wild interiors of Wales and Scotland, and many more centuries before the countries of Scotland, Wales and England were united under one crown.
