Edward the Confessor (1003-1066)Download nowEnlargeShow similar images

Title: Edward the Confessor (1003-1066)

Description: Edward the Confessor (c.1003-January 5, 1066), one of the last Anglo-Saxon kings of England, shown center sitting on his throne, gives advice to Earl Harold Godwinson of Wessex (Harold II; c. 1022-October 14, 1066), who was later captured by Duke William of Normandy, his cousin. Harold, at the threat of death, promised to renounce his claim to the British throne upon the death of Edward, but he reneged. William invaded England, defeated Harold, then the last Anglo-Saxon king of England, and killed him at the battle of Hastings in 1066, becoming William I of England (William the Conqueror; c. 1028-September 9, 1087). Harold's defeat was based upon the fact that he had recently fought and defeated a Viking army and his troops were depleted and exhausted when they met the French forces of William at Hastings and where Harold did not control those forces, many leaving their protective defense lines to attack and opening gaps through which William and his knights charged and where William killed Harold, causing the Saxons to surrender.
