How long was Harold godwinson the king of England?
King Harold reigned for 40 weeks and a day.
Harold Hadrada did not win the battle of hastings he was killed by Harold Godwinson at Stanford bridge. After a long fight William Duke of Normandy shot Harold Godwinson in the eye which made William thr king of England.
Harold godwinson never became king. William, duke of Normandy won at the battle of Hastings. He had long and short term problems he had to sort out before he became king.
Harold Godwinson (1022-1066) ruled England as Harold II for just 40 weeks in 1066 (January 6 to October 14) before being killed at the Battle of Hastings, which established William I (William the Conqueror) as king in December of that year. Harold's rival for the throne, Edgar the Aetheling, was proclaimed king, but not crowned, in the intervening two months.
He wasn't a bad king but he just didnt last very long as king
Harold godwinson was an English man and a relative of king Edward the conqueror because Edward married his sister and made him king . He wasn't king for very long because he died in the battle of Hastings in 1066 trying to defend his country.
William the Conqueror was the first Norman King of England. He was Duke of Normandy before conquering England. He fought a decisive battle known as 'Battle of Hastings' on 14th October, 1066 against Harold Godwinson, the last Anglo-Saxon King. The battle was only one day long and ended in a decisive victory for William's army.
Harold Godwineson has long hair and a mustache he was a bulky man .
King Harold II of England The son of the powerful Anglo-Saxon Earl Godwin of Wessex, Harold Godwinson (also Godwineson) was a strong political and military leader in his own right. The Godwins were in frequent opposition to the francophile king, Edward the Confessor, whom Harold served as chief minister for more than 12 years. Edward allegedly named William of Normandy as his heir in 1051; however, on his deathbed, the old king evidently chose Harold… Read More
yes, Off course, Harold Godwinson had celebrated him victory on defeating Hardraada although Godwinson got poked with an arrow which killed him by William Duke of Normandy. Unfortunately the date can not be confirmed as it was such a long time ago. Sorry!

It took 7-8 days to get there.
Harold Hardrada was the king of Norway. His claim to the throne of England was very complex and rather dubious. Hardrada was the half-brother of King Olaf II of Norway who had been deposed by King Canute of Denmark and England in 1030 when Hardrada was just 15. When Canute died in 1035 his empire was divided between hs sons. England was ruled by Harold "Harefoot" and Denmark by Harthacanute. Norway, however, reverted back to… Read More
It took him about 7 days to get there and willam one blah blah blah.
In England the Viking Age began dramatically on 8 June 793 when Vikings destroyed the abbey on Lindisfarne. The culture had been around for centuries before that though. The end of the Viking Age is traditionally marked in England by the failed invasion attempted by the Norwegian king Harald III who was defeated by Saxon King Harold Godwinson in 1066 at the Battle of Stamford Bridge. In Scandinavia the Viking age is considered to have… Read More
Yes!!! Harold Godwienson got crowned king during the battle of Hastings! But not for long. Harold Godwienson beat Harald Hadraada in the 1st part but then he unfortunately got killed by William the Conqueror.
King Harold was tired before the battle of hastings because he had no sleep, and because him and his army had faught for about 9 hours before, and marched a long distance.
William won the battle of Hastings agaisnt Harold Godwinson because, Williams troops were well trained and rode on horseback. Whilst Harold had weak men as the journey there took a long time. Also leaving Harolds men weak was the fact that Harold got shot in the eye with a arrow leaving his troops defenceless half way through the battle.
Harold Godwinson heard about the news that Harold Hardrada had pillaged and defeated the English at Gate Fulford. He marched North and covered 190 miles in 4 days. This completely caught Hardrada by surprise who alongside most of the Vikings where not fully equipped and drunk through celebrations. In another long bloody battle, Harold Godwinsson won total victory.
There were no Romans in the Battle of Hastings. They had long since faded into history. This decisive battle in 1066 won by the Normans. It was fought between the Norman, William the Conqueror and an Anglo-Saxon army led by Harold Godwinson.
Denmark was unified by the danish king "Harold Bluetooth" in around 980
Harold Godwinson won the battle of Stamford Bridge, but it tired his army, and afterwords the army had to march a very long way to get to the Battle of Hastings. It is thought that part of the reason he lost at Hastings was that his army was tired.
He was king of England from 1042-1066!!!
He was King of England for 21 years.
He didn't. The Hundred Years War happened in the 14th and 15th centuries. The only William Duke of Normandy I know of was the guy who fought the battle of Hastings against Harold Godwinson in 1066. Admittedly William did technically cause the Hundred Years War as without him conquering England it would never have had lands in France and the wars, if any, would not have been so long.
because William stayed at top of the senlac hill and long as he stays there he is going to be safe................
There has not been a King Philip of England. King Philip II of Spain was married to Queen Mary I of England from 1554 to 1558, and was her King Consort. He was born on 21st May 1527 and died on 13th September 1598.
The french-Norman invasion of England was the last successful invasion of England. started in September 28 of 1066 and after defeating Harold in the battle of Hastings in 1066 Oct 14, he crowned himself has the king of England in December 25th. Therefore, the war lasted from Sept 28 to Oct 14 or Dec 25. Ye Huang Nov 20 2009 P.S i am only 14
Because the King of England didn't want them to leave.

The first king of England is generally identified as Aethelstan, the grandson of Alfred the Great. He was crowned king of England at Kingston-upon-Thames in September 925. He died in October 939. He ruled for 14 years and six weeks.

Edgar the Ætheling was the last prince of the old West Saxon (Wessex) royal line when Edward the Confessor died in January 1066. The word Ætheling means "noble son" and indicated he was of royal blood. However, when Edward the Confessor died, Edgar was only about ten years old and was passed over when it came to inheriting the throne which went to Harold Godwinson instead, who went to to rule England as King Harold… Read More

The monarchy of England considers itself an unbroken line of succession since 1066. That was the year in which William I invaded England and became its king.
Well, if Harold and his army marched about 250 miles in total, and about 50 miles a day to meet William, it would have taken him about 5 days to get there. I think he marched somewhere between 30 miles and 50 miles a day, but im not certain. actually harolds car was faster than an enzo farrari so he got ther in 5 hours to 16 hours
The best known event is the Battle of Hastings in 1066. William the Duke of Normandy claimed the right to the English throne. Harold, King of England had to defend his claim but was outmanuvered by William, who sent a diversionary attack in the north. The English army had to quick march from the north to meet the Normans in Hastings. Harold was fatally wounded. William was crowned King. The next must be the signing… Read More
Harald Haralda is another volunteer. He is 51 years old. If he becomes King, he may not have a long time to live because people died when they were about 50 or 60. Therefore the people of England would have to go through the process of finding a new king again and this would take a long time until they find a successor. One advantage of Harald Haralda becoming king is that he has great… Read More
59 years longest England's longest-ruling monarch before Queen Victoria
After he had his forces and ships ready for the invasion, it took from early August to late September 1066 before he could sail, because of adverse winds. When the winds turned, he crossed in a few days. After landing it took a little over three weeks before he had defeated king Harold.
Well, the history books say his army walked 50 miles* a day and the distance between the two points is just over 400 miles so about 8 and a bit days. *Twice the amount the roman army would march per day.
