The Battle of Hastings began at about 9 a.m. on 14 October 1066 and lasted all day. After the battle England was to have a new ruling class and all the misery, strife, and woe that goes with invasion and occupation. The army of Norman Conquest was made up of thousands of Norman, French, Flemish, and Breton troops, led by the Duke of Normandy; forever known as William the Conqueror. Some estimate William’s force at 12,000 men; about one half infantry, one quarter cavalry, and one quarter archers or crossbowmen. They faced some 7,000–8,000 English troops although contemporary records do not give reliable figures. Ultimately it is speculated that perhaps 2,000 Normans and 4,000 Englishmen were killed that day.
