No, or the battle of Hastings never would've happened. The Battle of Hastings happened because Harold became king while he promised William that William would be king

Harold Hardrada was defeated and killed at the battle of Stamford Bridge. Therefore he didn't participate in the Battle of Hastings.

AnswerThe battle was fought on Senlac Hill, in a village called Battle, eight miles north west of the coastal town of Hastings in the south east of England.It could have been called "the Battle of Senlac Hill", or even "the Battle for England," but all historians now use the name "Battle of Hastings."Perhaps it is called the battle of hastings as Williams troops arrived in Pevensey and made their way to Hasting where they awaited Harold and his armyWell, in those times battle was really called Hastings. So they called it the Battle of Hastings. However they soon changed Hastings and called it battle AFTER the battle had happened. But they did not see the point in changing the name, because it was already history.

Yes, William was a good leader during the battle of Hastings because he put his men in great positions and he persuaded people to fight him.
