Middle Ages

500 A.D. - 1300 A.D.

On December 25, 1066, Duke William of Normandy was crowned king at West Minster Abbey.  The cries of the people in English and French were so clamorous that they alarmed the Norman guard.  They assumed something had gone horrible wrong and set fire to the near by houses.

The Hystorica Calamitatum reports that the fire spread rapidly.  The people in the church were thrown into confusion.  Crowds abandoned the ceremony to put out the fire, and the Troublesome Ones to loot.  Only the monks, bishops and a few clergy remained before the altar.

Terrified, they managed to complete the consecration of the king who trembled violently.
