When Edward the confessor died in 1066, his brother in-law, Harold Godwin broke an oath and claimed the throne for himself.
I am the King of England!
William was angered by this betrayal and decided to invade England and take the throne by force.
The first attack came from the north by the Norwegians. Godwin was not expecting this and had to march his army to meet them.
This land belongs to President William of Norway!
I am here to claim what was promised to me!
After defeating the Norwegians, King Godwin marched his troops south, without rest, to meet William.
I owe you nothing!
Godwin was defeated and himself along with his two brothers were killed.
This left a clear path to the throne, and William was crowned as the ruler of England soon after.
