In 1066 King Edward the Confessor died and he left his throne to Harold Godwinson. However, previously Harold Godwinson was in a life threatning boat crash, when a french duke called William duke of Normandy, saved him. Harold Godwinson was so thankful he promised William duke of Normandy the throne was Edward the Confessor died. Although once King Edward the Confessor did die Harold Godwinson was crowned king as no one knew about his (broken) promise.Later on Harold found out that there were two other men who were expecting the crown to belong to them, thats when the battle of Hastings was declared.The first man was Harald Hardrada,he was a viking from Norway, his grandfather had previously been king so he thought he was entitled to the throne. So the start of the great battle began and Harold Godwinson killed Harald and the rest of his army.Then the second part of the battle was declared and Harold Godwinsons army were exhausted enough with out having to march hundreds of miles to the next war etween them and William duke of Normandy. But they got a head start when they got there by getting the very top of a hill. Williams army (the best in Europe) kept shooting but could not get anyone as it just goes up and over.William realised that his army were tired and were losing badly and decided to trick Harold. He walked of the other way so it looked clear to Harold that they had given up, so they followed them down the hill and thats when someone from Williams army shot Harold in the eye! William was so happy that he had won, but angry at Harold for breaking his promise. So the whole of Williams army gathered round him and cut him up into tiny pieces, while the rest of Harolds army fleed.Later on William was crowned king and renamed WILLAIM THE CONQUERER!

Nope. Harold Finch, his character limps. And even he didn't always limp. Look at flashback sequences set before 2010 -- he runs, works out. It is only during the flashbacks, before his accident, that Harold doesn't limp.

err nothing did it has been estimated that three hundred thousand people died in the wake of the Norman conquest, that's one in five of the population.

I belive if you have good tactics and a good battle plan then you are a good leader and that's exactly what William had. Good tactics and a great mind in battle. Like the playing dead thing. AWSOME! I mean the dude's a riot!get a life chloeandjas
