Kings involved in the invasion of 1066

Postby Templar Knight » Thu Sep 24, 2009 8:58 pm

Out of Godwinson, Hadrada, William and Edward which king was the most significant, not just in the invasion, but afterwards the influences they made before and after the conquest.

Only William had any influence afterwards. The rest died in 1066.

Don't understand the question, as already said, the Harolds and Edward died in 1066 so their influence ended. William had the biggest impact in messing up the country and making it the diluted French hell hole it is today 8)

As opposed to the diluted saxon hell hole it was then.

saxons, normans - all invaders

William wasn't a proper king, he was a jumped up Norman bastard son of a duke! :lol: :lol:

Stirring?

Oh you can see, on the hill,
There’s a sign of your lord’s will,
A brand new Norman castle towers high.
So you work, till your spent,
Just to pay tax and the rent,
You’ll never rest now ‘till you die.

Cheer up Saxon reeve
How worse can it be?
Your king’s a Norman bastard
And you’re his property.

You once, seemed so free,
But you’re now on bended knee,
Everything you knew it has all gone,
So you look, to the sky,
And the sun shines in your eye,
The world today it doesn’t seem so wrong.

Cheer up Saxon reeve
How worse can it be?
Your king’s a Norman bastard
And you’re his property.
Cheer up Saxon reeve
How worse can it be?
Your king’s a Norman bastard
And you’re his property.

It reads a bit better if you put fat before Norman in the chorus but that would be plain wrong. There is no such thing as a plump Norman.

It probably would have been obvious, but I haven't got the sound turned up on this forum :lol:

Even with the volume up the woefully tone-deaf sceechings of the Norman camp would have made the tune unrecognisable.

No need to go to the Norman camp. They can give you a chorus when you are all lying down on top of Senlac ridge in a couple of weeks time.

Have met the Norman camp? They're the ones in the pink tents with glitter on their helmets.

The question is irrelevant

Godwinson was not a king he was a usurper and lost his trial by Battle

Hardrada was a scando tramp and therefore smelt of fish and lsot to a usurper so thats enough of him

And William yes the bastard son of A duke BUT a successful bastard son of a duke

And whats this singing we are always too busy eating a hecatoon or three to sing


There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

Hardrada is still remebered for his earlier exploits aswell as his death.
Edward was later decalred a saint, majour influense on later English royals as a result.
Wiliam laid the foundasions(sp) for what became under Henry II the largest state in western europe (even if it was lots of counties and dukedoms).
Godwinson's death at hastings elivated him to an english hero who will never be forgotton.

Edward is the most signicant if not for his death then 1066 would be just another ignored in history

William was a proper king just like the rest of that day and later an opertunist who knew a good thing when he saw it grabbed it with both hands.Was there not a story that Harold was not the true heir but the strongest b*****d around and had the bigest army in the land that helps.
