We love you Edward. You served this country well!
I can see the light Good Bye World!
Thow who thinks worthy to take the crown come to the castle!
King Edward dies.
Because King Edward had no son to take the crown next The it was open to the public.
Three people came to the throne. Harold Godwinson, William of Normandy and Harold Hardrada. Each having their strong reasons why they should be king
William of Normandy said that he should be kind because he cares for the country. He sent troops to help Edward before he died and was well respected by the English people. The pope had trust in him meaning God did too. Although William was not related to Edward
Harold believed he should be King because all the strong and important men of England chose Harold to be their king too! Also he already controlled an area of England called Wessex! He was English but wan't blood related to Edward but was his brother-in-law
Harold believed he should be king becuase his family had been king of England beofre Edward. Harold also had the support from the English people in the north. He wasn't realted to Edward though.
