One Victor… One King

King Harold II

William, the Duke of Normandy
with a strong viking heritage,
promised England’s throne
Edward the Confessor’s successor.

Harold Godwinson, stepped in
claiming the English throne,
backed by English barons
denying William; the rightful heir.

William and Harold met in battle
warrior against warrior at Hastings,
the prize on offer to the victor
the coveted English throne.

Joyful and triumphant
William won through.
