Wilkie, (WILLIAM,) D.D., a Scottish poet and
divine, born in Linlithgowshire in 1721, became pro-
fessor of natural philosophy at Saint Andrew's. He
was the author of a poem entitled " The Epigoniad,"
(on the sacking of Thebes by the Epigoni,) which en-
joyed for a time great popularity among some of the
Scottish literati, who, somewhat absurdly, styled Wilkie
" the Scottish Homer." It has since fallen into utter
neglect. Died in 1772.

Wil'kins, (Sir CHARLES,) a distinguished English
Orientalist, born at Frome, in Somersetshire, in 1749.
He went to India in 1770 as a writer on the Bengal
establishment, and learned Arabic, Persian, and other
languages used in the East Indies. He applied himself
to the study of Sanscrit with great success. In 1784,
in conjunction with Sir William Jones, he founded the
Literary Society of Calcutta. He appears to have been
the first European who made translations from the
original Sanscrit. He published in 1785 an English
translation of the "Bhagavat Gita," perhaps the most
interesting part of the great Hindoo epic entitled
" Mah&bharata," and two years afterwards gave to the
world a translation of the " Hitopadesa." He returned
to England about 1786, became librarian to the East
India Company in 1801, and published a "Sanscrit

He became Bishop of Chester in 1668. He was one
of the founders of the Royal Society and the author
of several works. Died in 1672.

general, and in 1796 he became general-in-chief. He
ifterwards commanded at New Orleans, and opposed
the designs of Aaron Burr. In the summer of 1813 he



commanded on the Northern frontier with ill success.
He was removed from the command about February,
1814. Died in Mexico in 1825. He published "Me-

Egypt and Thebes," (1843,) intended as a hand-book
for travellers, "The Architecture of Ancient Egypt,"
etc., (1850,) and "The Egyptians in the Time of the
Pharaohs," (1857,) which rank among the most valu-
able and interesting compositions of the kind. He was
made a knight in 1840, and soon after elected a Fellow
of the Royal Society, and member of other learned
institutions. Died October 29, 1875.

Wilkinson, (THE RIGHT REV. THOMAS,) D.D., a
Roman Catholic bishop, was born at Harperley, April
5, 1825, and received his education at Harrow and at the
University of Durham. He at first intended to take
orders in the Church of England, but becoming unset-
tled in his religious belief, he was received into the
Roman Catholic communion in 1846, and after a course
of theological studies at Oscott, was ordained priest at
Ushaw College in 1848. In 1865 he was elected Canon

where he took his medical degree in 1780, and in 1783
became physician to the Public Dispensary in Carey

William (wll'yam) L, surnamed THE CONQUEROR,
[Lat. GULIEL'MUS CONQUES'TOR ; Fr. GUILLAUME LE
CONQUERANT, ge'yom' leh koN'ki'roN',] King of Eng-
land, born at Falaise in 1025, was an illegitimate son of
Robert, Duke of Normandy. He succeeded his father
in 1035, as William II. of Normandy, and during his
minority gave proof of his energy and courage by re-
ducing to submission the rebellious Norman barons. He
gained the favour of his kinsman Edward the Confessor,
King of England, who, having no issue, formed a secret
intention to adopt William as his heir. His chief com-
petitor was Harold, a Saxon prince, whom a majority
of the people of England preferred to the Duke of
Normandy. On the death of Edward (January, 1066)
Harold ascended the throne, without opposition. (See
HAROLD.)

"William," says Hume, "by his power, his courage,
and his abilities, had long maintained a pre-eminence
among the haughty chieftains" of Western Europe.
Having resolved to invade England, he soon assembled
a fleet of 3000 vessels and an army of 60,000 men.
Several powerful barons of adjoining countries, with
their retainers, were attracted to his standard by the
grandeur and audacity of the enterprise. The Norman
army landed at Pevensey, in Sussex, about the 28th of
September, and defeated the English, commanded by
Harold, at Senlac, near Hastings, on the I4th of October,
1066. Harold was killed in this battle, which was one
of the most decisive and important that occurred in the
Middle Ages. According to Hume, William lost nearly
15,000 men. He followed up his victory with celerity
and vigour, encountered little opposition in his march
to London, and was crowned in Westminster Abbey on
the 2<;th of December. Edgar Atheling, who had been

proclaimed king at the death of Harold, renounced
his claim and submitted to William.

The Conqueror appeared at first willing to conciliate
his new subjects by mildness; but he confiscated the
estates of those partisans of Harold who had been killed
at Hastings, and took care to place all real power in the
hands of the Normans. While he was absent on a
visit to Normandy, in 1067, conspiracies were formed
against him, and hostilities began in many places. Hume
expresses a suspicion that he left England in order that
the revolts provoked by his licentious soldiery might
furnish him with a pretext for severe and tyrannical
measures. According to the same writer, " this measure
was the immediate cause of all the calamities which
England endured during this and the subsequent reigns."
William returned about the end of 1067, and maintained
his power by acts of excessive cruelty. He ordered his
army to lay waste by fire the extensive tract between the
Humber and the Tees. The majority of the proprietors
of land were deprived of their estates by confiscation,
and all the natives were reduced to a state not much
better than slavery. During a visit of William to the
continent, in 1074, several Norman barons revolted
against him, and were defeated.

He had become the most powerful sovereign of Europe,
when Pope Gregory VII. wrote him a letter, requiring
him to do homage for the kingdom of England to the
see of Rome, and to send the tribute which his prede-
cessors had been accustomed to pay to the pope. By
the tribute he meant Peter's pence. William replied
that the money should be remitted as usual, but he
refused to pay homage. About 1078 his son Robert
levied war against William in Normandy. During this
wai Robert happened to encounter the king, whom he
wounded and unhorsed. Struck with remorse on dis-
covering that he had wounded his father, Robert asked
his pardon, and made peace with him. In the latter
part of his reign he ordered a general survey of all the
lands in the kingdom, their extent in each district, their
proprietors, tenure, and value. "This monument, called
'Domesday Book,'" says Hume, "is the most valuable
piece of antiquity possessed by any nation." He had
married Matilda, a daughter of Baldwin, Earl of Flan-
ders. On the approach of death, he discovered the
vanity of all human grandeur, and was filled with re-
morse for his cruelties. He died at Rouen in 1087,
caving three sons, Robert, William, and Henry.

'William IL, King of England, surnamed RU'FUS,
[Fr. GUILLAUME LE Roux, ge'yom' leh roo,] from the
colour of his hair, was born in Normandy in 1056. He
was the second of the surviving sons of William the
Conqueror. His education was directed by the famous
Lanfranc. According to some historians, William I.,
just before his death, wrote a letter to Lanfranc, desiring
him to crown his son William as King of England, and
at the same time he left Normandy and Maine to Robert.
William was crowned in September, 1087. The Anglo-
Norman barons, who owned estates both in England
and Normandy and would be required to pay allegiance
to two masters, favoured the claim of Robert to both
thrones. They took arms against William, but were
ioon reduced to submission. In 1091 he invaded Nor-
mandy with an army to wage war against Robert, who
prevented hostilities by a treaty, according to which
William obtained the towns of Aumale, Fescamp, etc.
He afterwards instigated the Norman barons to rebel
against Robert, and passed over to Normandy in 1094
to support his partisans. He was prevented from push-
ing his advantages by an incursion of the Welsh, which
obliged him to return to England. Robert, having
enlisted in the first crusade, sold or mortgaged his
dominions to William for the small sum of 10,000 marks,
(1096.) William did not partake of the general enthu-
siasm for the crusade. "It is likely," says Hume, "that



he made the romantic chivalry of the crusaders the objec*
of his perpetual raillery." He was found dead in the
New Forest in August, iioo. Hume adopts the popular
account that Walter Tyrrel, while hunting with the
king, discharged an arrow which glanced from a tree
and killed William. He had never married, and was
succeeded by his brother Henry. "He seems," says
Hume, "to have been a violent and tyrannical prince ;
a perfidious, encroaching, and dangerous neighbor ; an
unkind and ungenerous relation."

LAND, "Lives of the Bachelor Kings of England," 1861; JOHN
HAYWARD, " Life of William II.," 1613.

William in., or William Henry, King of England
and Stadtholder of Holland, was born at the Hague on
the I4th of November, 1650. He was the eldest or
only son of William II., Prince of Orange, and Mary
Stuart, a daughter of Charles I. of England, and was
styled Prince of Orange before his accession to the
throne of Great Britain. At the death of his father
(1650) the party opposed to the house of Orange deter-
mined that there should never be another Stadtholder.
On the death of De Witt, in 1672, the young prince
became the chief of the government, and took strenuous
measures to defend the state against the French armies
which had invaded it. He opened the dikes and inun-
dated the seat of war, exclaiming that he would die in the
last ditch rather than witness the ruin of the republic.
The invaders were forced to save themselves by a hasty
retreat. In 1674 he was defeated at Senef by the Prince
of Conde. The war was ended by the peace of Nymwe-
gen, in 1678. He married in 1677 Mary, a daughter of
James, Duke of York, afterwards James II. of England.
Besides his native Dutch, he spoke and wrote the
French, English, and German languages fluently, though
not elegantly nor exactly. "The tenet of predestina-
tion," says Macaulay, " was the keystone of his religion."
From a child he had been weak and sickly, and in man-
hood he was subject to painful and depressing maladies.

Before he had reached the age of twenty-five, he was
renowned throughout Europe as a soldier and diplo-
matist, and was the master-spirit of a powerful coalition
against Louis XIV. of France. He became about 1686
the head of the English opposition which the perverse
and infatuated course of James II. had provoked. In the
summer of 1688 he was invited by Russell, Sidney, and
other conspirators to come with an army for the defence
of liberty and the Protestant religion in England.
William issued a declaration, in which he abjured all
thought of conquest, and pledged himself to leave all
questions to the decision of a free Parliament. In
November, 1688, he landed at Torbay with an army of
about 14,000 men. He was joined by numerous peers,
and was favoured by a general defection in the army
of King James, who threw the great seal into the
Thames and absconded on the nth of December, 1688.
The revolution was thus accomplished without much
bloodshed. He called a convention, composed of peers
and the surviving members of the former House of
Commons, which in February, 1689, voted that James
had abdicated, and that William and Mary should be
declared King and Queen of England. Amidst the gen-
eral joy, the ill humour of the clergy and the army was
very conspicuous. The position of William was beset
with great difficulties. The deposed king had many
adherents in Ireland and Scotland, who supported his
