William the Conqueror was a brutal son of a bitch when he was challenged. A bio of him would have to be unflinchingly honest. Didn't he order his army to lay waste to the populations of some northern villages who had dared rebel against his rule?
Yes, it's called Harrying of the North. Northern English lords, who were used to semi-independence and were basically half Scandinavian from many years of Viking rule, rebelled against Normans for several years until William went there with an army and burned half of Northumbria.
