Domesday Book

William the Conqueror's great survey of England in 1086, which allowed him to calculate all the feudal income due to him, is described in LONDON: 'The Tower'. In the story, a clerical error in Domesday Book will lead to disaster for the descendants of Alfred the Armourer.

The award for shortest reign in history goes to…Louis-Antoine Duke of Angoulême of France ! Louis XIX ruled for approximately 20 minutes – the time between when his father Charles X of France signed abdication papers in 1830 and the moment he too wielded a quill, signing away his rights to the throne.
