The death of Duke Robert I has left Normandy in turmoil with Norman barons waging war against each other, defying the young heir William. Son to a tanner's daughter he is challenged by the most rebellious baron, Gui de Brionne, who claims the reign for himself in the name of his forebear Rollo. Under his banners the insurgent nobles gather in Bayeux, plotting against the duke. After a failed attempt on his life William rallies his loyalist supporters and marches towards Caen to meet the conspirators in open battle at Val-ès-Dunes.
