Harold: The Last Anglo-Saxon King

King Harold Godwineson (c 1022-66) is one of history's shadowy figures, known mainly for his defeat and death at the Battle of Hastings. His true status and achievements have been overshadowed by the events of October 1066 and by the bias imposed by the Norman victory. This title sets out to correct this distorted image.
