"This woman [Edith, Godwin's daughter and his queen] and all the kingdom I commend to your charge. . ."

With these words, uttered by the dying Edward the Confessor, Harold, son of Goodwin became King of England. His reign started in controversy and ended 9 months later. It was said that King Edward had promised the throne of England to Duke William of Normandy and that Harold himself had made an oath to William to protect his claim in England upon the relics of Norman saints.

On January 10th, William received a message that changed his life forever. "King Edward is dead, and Harold is raised to the Kingdom." For years he had told his friends and allies that he will be the next king of England and the message was a blow to his pride. He was not going to let Harold, whom he considered to be an usurper, rule the kingdom that was rightfully his. This is the beginning of the Norman conquest that will change England and its people forever.
