He defeated King Harald (Hardrada) and about 4000 Norwegians at the Battle of Stamford Bridge on September 25, 1066, three weeks before the Battle of Hastings. On October 14, 1066, at Hastings, there were anywhere from 4000 to 30,000 men on each side. Harold's forces fell to those of William of Normandy, who had landed at Pevensey on September 28.

The first battle in 1066 was the "Battle of Fulford" on September 20th between the Earls Edwin and Morcar of England, in command of half the English forces and the Scandinavian invaders under Harald Hardrada of Norway. The English lost. The next battle was the "The Battle of Stamford Bridge" on September 25th. It began when Harald Hardrada and the Vikings attacked,but their army was soon defeated by King Harold Godwinson'sEnglish army who had arrived from the south. King Harold then travelled south to a place called "Battle" where the famous "Battle of Hastings" took place on October 14th (Although it was set in Battle.. but you can't call it the "Battle of Battle").

In the Battle of Hastings William shot King Harold in the eye. In addition he prepared a better army than King Harold and Harold Hardrada. William had professional battle men and knights on horses for the attack (cavalry). He built ships that contained his forces across the sea. Also he was brave and encouraged his men at a time of difficulty and made them use the clever trick of making the English army run up and down the hill.


King Harold made many miscalculations during the Battle of Hastings that led to his defeat. He dismissed a large number of his forces just prior to the battle. He rushed into the battle without adequate time to regroup from his previous battle. He did not trust his commanders and refused their assistance.


It was simply a battle between the native British and invading Norwegian forces. The Norwegians (led by king King Harold Godwinson) had invaded England - as part of an intended conquest of the UK. It happened in 1066 - shortly before the battle of Hastings.
