    William the Conqueror was the first Norman King of England. And ruled both Normandy and England though never tried to unite them. He preferred to let them do their own thing while accepting tribute. He even kept most of England's institutions. He couldn't speak English and was illiterate but he changed the English language forever by introducing French and Latin words and every Monarch since is in someway related to him. I wonder how England would have turned out in his absence.
