William Rufus (William II of England)

King of England - Named William Rufus due to his ruddy complexion and his fiery temper William seems to have been a flamboyant character, and his reign was marked by his bellicose temperament. According to William of Malmesbury, William Rufus was "well set; his complexion florid, his hair yellow; of open countenance; different coloured eyes, varying with certain glittering specks; of astonishing strength, though not very tall, and his belly rather projecting."
