Contrary to popular belief, William the Conqueror was not the first king of England. That honour goes to Athelstan 140 years before William. The country, or parts of it, had their own kings before Athelstan, King of Wessex, united them in 927. We've had many monarchs since then - some truly unforgettable whilst some remain almost unheard of. Next time you pass a ‘King’s street’ or ‘King’s Square’, why not endeavour to find out to which king it refers?
