the british and the normans

and possibly the pirates of...oh no i mean the vikings of erm i tink sweden

The "Viking" contingent fought in a separate battle at Stamford Bridge in the North of England a few weeks before Hastings.

King Harold would have identified himself as Saxon rather than British, England had rarely been ruled exclusively as one kingdom, as Danish invasions had resulted in rival rulers from both the Saxon and Danish factions.

William Duke of Normandy was a descendant of the Danish line with a link to the English line through the same great aunt who had first married King Ethlered and then King Canute.

The Normans being Norsemen that had colonised Northern France.
