1066 The battle of Hastings

Harold II son of the Earl of Wessex had sworn an oath of allegiance to Duke William of Normandy that William was the rightful king of England as the childless king Edward The Confessor had promised him the throne on his death. Backed by the royal counsel or Witan (who did not want a foreign ruler) Harold broke his oath and took the crown on the Kings death in January 1066. Duke William called upon Harold to honour his oath, and when this was refused William landed his army of around 9000 men unopposed at Pervensy near Beachy Head 28 September 1066. [ More]
