For Halep, it was a second Grand Slam title after breaking her duck at the 2018 French Open which had followed three losses in title matches at the Slams.
The Romanian also held serve twice to open up a 4-0 lead in the first set.
There were signs that Williams was finding her range in the second set but Halep was undaunted and reeled off the last five games, the contest ending after Williams buried a forehand into the net.
Halep played a erfect match, physically and psychologically, despite the surface not congenial to her, packing Serena who, perhaps, suffered the psychological pressure to reach the much-dreamed record, which Slam-after-Slam is becoming a chimera.
Before the tournament, King said: "She's got business, a baby, she's trying to help gender equity, particularly for women of colour, but all that makes it much harder to commit to winning a grand slam".
"I'm very sure that was the best match of my life", said Halep. She got here by bulldozing past Barbora Strycova 6-1, 6-2 in the semifinals, showing off conditioning and shot-making she hadn't previously displayed this year. If I was No 1 a few months ago doesn't mean that I have to play on Centre Court every time'. "Today", she said. "I'm very honest". In part because of a bad left knee, she only had played 12 matches all season until Wimbledon.
"Thinking that is a possibility to win on grass, it was tough to believe because we don't even have a grass court in Romania", she said. She didn't merely play defense, though, managing to go from retrieving an apparent point-ending stroke by Williams to lashing a victor of her own in a blink.
Serena Williams says she has no plans to end her fight for equality any time soon after a question from a reporter invoked Billie Jean King's concerns on Williams' dedication to tennis.
Williams, chasing history as she looked for major title No. 24, was emotional throughout, yelling "Come on!" after big moments, looking as if she was trying to will herself into the match. You can get too nervous.
Her daughter's birth "would have been a ideal moment to walk away, but I wanted more", she said in an interview previous year.
Not this time. Halep had lost nine of her 10 matches against Williams but on Friday she spent 30 minutes practising her returns, knowing that she had to face down the American's barrage to have any chance of getting into the match.
"I didn't think at all against who I play".
