Norman invasion of Ireland

The Norman invasion of Ireland took place in stages during the late 12th century and led to the Anglo-Normans conquering large swathes of land from the Irish. At the time, Gaelic Ireland was made up of several kingdoms, with a High King claiming lordship over the lesser kings. The Norman invasion was a watershed in the history of Ireland, marking the beginning of more than 800 years of direct English and, later, British involvement in Ireland.

In May 1169, Anglo-Norman mercenaries landed in Ireland......

The 1175 Treaty of Windsor acknowledged Henry as overlord of the conquered territory and RuaidrĂ­ as overlord of the rest of Ireland, with RuaidrĂ­ also swearing fealty to Henry.
