					  1066 and the
Bayeux tapestry


     By Paige and
        Sarah
   Who was Edward the
   Confessor and when
             did he die?
Edward the Confessor was the King of
  England and was one of King Cnut’s
  sons. He died in January 1066 and
  had no heirs to the throne.
Who did become King in 1066
 and how did this happen?
William of Normandy was
  crowned King in 1066 after
  he won the fight at the
  Battle of Hastings,
  defeating Harold
  Godwineson, Harald
  Hardrada and Tostig.
Why was 1066 such
 an important
     year?
 1066 was an important year because at
   the start of the year, it was ruled by
   Edward the Confessor, and at the end
   Edward of Normandy was King, after
   defeating Harold at the Battle of
   Hastings. Having three Kings in one
   year, plus having a legendary battle in
   October,means that its pretty hard to
   forget!
                                 No. 6
a)   The place where the Normans landed on the English coast:
     Pevensey in southern England.
b)   A group of advisors to the King – they chose Harold: Godwineson
c)   An omen of bad things to come, seen in the night sky just after
     Harold was crowned: Haley’s Comet
d)   The half brother of William who had a historical embroidery made:
     Odo of Bayeux
e)   The archbishop who crowned Harold Godwineson: Archbishop of
     York
f)   Battle between Harold and Harald: The Battle at Stamford Bridge
g)   The sister of Harold and wife to Edward: Edith
h)   Actual place of the final battle between Harold and William: In a
     field near Hastings
i)   Cathedral built by Edward: Westminster Cathedral
              Why these men
              thought they
              should be king
          Why Edgar the Atheling thought he should be king:
          Edgar thought he should be King because he was Edward
          The Confessor’s nephew. Although he was only thirteen or
          fourteen years old, he thought he would be a great king
          and was the only blood related man in the running.
          Why Tostig thought he should be king:
           Tostig thought he should be King as he was simply Harold
          Godwineson’s brother and was jealous of his brother’s
          position in the running to the throne.
Why Harald Hardradar thought he
should be king:
Harald Hardradar thought he should
be King as he was a direct
descendent King Cnut (who was a
Viking king). Harald, who was
already King of Normandy thought
that the Viking’s should retake the
throne again.
                               Why these men
                                thought they
                               should be king
Why Harold Godwineson thought he should be
  king:
     Harold Godwineson thought he should be
  King because he was Edward’s brother-in-
  law. Already Earl of Wessex, Harold thought
  he’d also make a good King because he has
  already fought against Edward’s army in
  1051 for control of England.


Why William thought he should be king:
   William thought he should be King because
  he believed Edward had already promised
  him the throne as he helped put down a
  rebellion in 1051.
 Where were the two
famous battles of 1066?
    The first famous battle in 1066 was, the battle of
  Hastings. The battle of Hastings was held near Hastings, it
  was a battle between William and Harold. William fought
  Harold for the throne, just 7 miles from Hastings in Senlac
  hill. Unfortunately Harold didn’t win the battle as his army
  wasn’t nearly as strong as William’s. William’s army had a
  huge advantage because: his soldiers were already trained,
  some were on horse backs and they had better armour.
  Harold’s army was mainly built up on untrained farmers
  from the country.

The second famous battle in 1066 was, the battle of
  Stamford Bridge. The battle of Stamford bridge was
  held on the Stamford Bridge, it was when two armies
  met at the bridge, the Viking's and Harald’s army.
  Harold’s army put up a great victory and won the
  Battle.
               Edward Rex means King Edward.    These are the horses riding to
               So this obviously means he was      Bosham, In Sussex, for
                       alive at this time.         Harold's family estate.

   1. Edward and Harold

 This Bayeux Tapestry scene, Edward and Harold, shows a
  moment where King Edward was having a conversation with
  his brother in law, Harold Godwineson. No one actually
  knows for sure what the two were talking about but two
  years later, after King Edward died, Harold had said that
  King Edward was at that moment, promising him the throne
  after his death. After King Edward and Harold
  Godwineson’s conversation, Harold set out for Bosham,
  Sussex. On Harold’s journey back there were horses and
  hunting dogs leading them. Harold was travelling To
  Bosham as this was his family estate.
The scene takes place in the Royal palace of Westminster, in
  1064.
