During the period of Medieval England, the country was run by a total of eight kings and one queen.
The start of Medieval England is marked by the arrival of William the Conqueror, who claimed England’s throne at the Battle of Hastings in 1066. This era is almost universally thought to have ended in 1377, when Richard II of Bordeaux took the throne.
