    Williams strategy for ruling England had failed by 1070

    how far do u agree with this statement?

    Im really confused even though I been taught this its just I don't know how to answer it

    You must consider all the rebellions against him. Mention rebellion dates like 1067- Hereford, 1068- Exeter. 1068- Mercia. 1068- York. 1069- York. 1069- Harrying of the North. Though 1075 is past the stated 1070 you can gather information from that date about how his reign was going; his own earls rebelled against him. Personally, I wouldn't say his 'strategy' had failed. Rebellion was to be expected, he replaced Anglo-Saxon earls with Norman earls without the 'permission' of the community and to be fair to him, he handled the rebellions very well.

    In regards to the feudal system. It wasn't popular. It was controlling, peasants had to pay increased tax and weren't free to move whenever they wanted. They sometimes had no option of who became their earl.
