Harold II GODWINESON (King) of ENGLAND

     aka Harold GODWINSSON (GODWINSON) `the Saxon'; Ealdorman of WESSEX; Chief supporter of King Edward `Confessor', q.v.

    Note: While prisoner of William of Normandy, he agreed William was the heir to England, but despite his lack of royal blood Harold was made King on the death of Edward Confessor. In 1066 he defeated a large Norse Army at the Battle of Stamford Bridge, but his weakened army was then no match for the Normans invading from the other direction.
