De Guillermo el conquistador, póstumas si se quiere, habrán sido pronunciadas en normando, 21 años después de Hastings:
On 9 September 1087, William I died. His body was carried to his great church of St Stephen at Caen. Towards the end of his life he had grown very fat and when the attendants tried to force the body into the stone sarcophagus, it burst, filling the church with a foul smell. It was an unfortunate ending to the career of an unusually fortunate and competent king.
