William the Conqueror: I laid siege to this town for two years, from 1084 - 1086. One of my Norman aristocrats had rebelled against me, and was using the castle here as a stronghold. Though the castle proved an advantageous place of fortification, my forces and numbers were relentless, and eventually the rebels surrendered after a long two years of siege. The rebellious noble reconciled with me, and I restored him to favor.
