The king’s life has been extensively researched and documented, from the years from his illegitimate birth to his tragic burial. Born in Normandy and promised to King Edward to stay on the throne of England, William decided to invade the country when another pretender to the crown took the throne. Abbott tells the famous story of the Battle of Hastings in detail and, using a fascinating narrative, captures the struggles, ambitions and ambitions of the young conqueror during his reign.
The reign of William the Conqueror in England greatly changed the country, whose inhabitants resented being ruled by a foreigner who depended entirely on his army to keep the country under his control and who prevented many of their rebellions. With a brief history of the Saxon and Danish kings of England and the princes of Normandy, in original sketches, this book is good for anyone interested in the politics of the Middle Ages and is a useful addition to Every library is enthusiastic.
Abbott graduated from Bowdoin College in 1820. At some point during his years there, he is said to have added a second “t” to his surname, to avoid being “Jacob Abbot the 3rd” (he was although one source says he didn’t actually start signing his name with two t’s until many years later).
Abbott studied at Andover Theological Seminary in 1821, 1822, and 1824. He taught at Portland Academy and was a lecturer at Amherst College the next year.
