Crynodeb

This article uses the historical works of William of Malmesbury to explore notions and concepts of kingship in Norman England. It argues, first, that his understanding of the royal office owes more to traditional, even patristic, concepts of secular power than historians have been willing to accept, and, secondly, that his concept of a ruler's duties was more concerned with issues of proper behaviour, symbolic actions and moral leadership than those aspects of Anglo-Norman kingship which modern scholars have traditionally explored.
