Bhí Liam IILiam 'Rufus' ("Liam rua" (t. 10562 Lúnasa 1100) ina rí ar Shasana ó 1087 go 1100. Ba é an dara mac ag Liam I é.

Saol[cuir in eagar | athraigh foinse]

Bhí tailte ag Liam sa Normainn agus le linn a réimis, daingníodh greim na Normannach ar an Bhreatain Bheag agus an Albain.

Scríobh an starí Frank Barlow[1] faoi mar a leanas:

"He had maintained good order and satisfactory justice in England and restored good peace to Normandy. He had extended Anglo-Norman rule in Wales, brought Scotland firmly under his lordship".

agus

"[a] rumbustious, devil-may-care soldier, without natural dignity or social graces, with no cultivated tastes and little show of conventional religious piety or morality—indeed, according to his critics, addicted to every kind of vice, particularly lust and especially sodomy."

Níor phós Liam riamh agus ní raibh aon ghean ag a chúirt air.

Ní raibh sé éasca do Anraí I teacht i gcomharbacht ar Liam.

Dúnmharú ?[cuir in eagar | athraigh foinse]

Bhí Liam amach ag seilg sa New Forest nuair a maraíodh é. Scaoil duine de na huaisle, Walter Tirel, saighead leis, is cosúil.

Ó bhí sé gan oidhre, tháinig deartháir níos óige leis, Anraí I, i gcomharbas air, ach ní gan dua é.
