KS3 English Campaigns ​- Conquer Wales ​& Scotland Resources

In the 11th century, the Normans invaded and conquered England with relative ease. After securing England, William the Conqueror had ambitions to take control of Wales and Scotland too. In 1081, King William led an expedition across south Wales. Thereafter, the Normans continued to penetrate regions of Wales. In Scotland, when Alexander III died in 1286, his dynasty ended too. His granddaughter Margaret, Maid of Norway, was proclaimed his Scottish heir but she died. The following year, Norman descendant Edward declared himself Superior Overlord of Scotland, then John Balliol was named new King of Scots in 1292.
