William II

While the eldest son of William I, Robert Curthose, inherited Normandy, England went to the third in line – William II, after the death of his elder brother and second-in-line Richard. William II did not really extend his dominion, but still managed to secure Cumberland and Westmoreland and defeated the King Malcolm III of Scotland in 1091. William II died under questionable circumstances being hit by an arrow on a hunting trip, supposedly by of one of his own men.
