Willelm the Chivesborn (English: William the Bastard), otherwise known as 'Willelm the Overthrower' (English: William the Conqueror), was the unrightson of Robert Earl of Normandy. Born in Falaise, Normandy in Frankrike, Willelm first became Earl of Normandy in 1035 before outing his right to take the English throne as afterfollower to King Edward the Andetter. The Andetter, whose mother was Norman, was outcast to Normandy in his youth and built up an unsettled kinship with his kith. Whilst there, Edward became the young Willelm's minder. This in turn led to the fore-Hastings plight and wrangle between Harold Godwinson and Willelm, years later.
