The gay and bisexual royals that you aren’t taught about in school
2. WILLIAM II OF ENGLAND (1056-1100)
Otherwise known as William Rufus after his red face, William II filled his courts with attractive young men.
Never marrying and without children, he instead dressed his courtiers in pointed shoes and ordered they grow out their hair. Choosing to promote based on performance in bed, rather than talent.
After being apparently assassinated, his successor, Henry I, forced his courtiers to trim their hair. William’s legacy was cut short.
