504    Includes bibliographical references (pages 157-173). 
520    1066 is the most famous date in history, and with good 
       reason, since no battle in medieval history had such a 
       devastating effect on its losers as the Battle of Hastings,
       which altered the entire course of English history.  The 
       French-speaking Normans were the pre-eminent warriors of 
       the 11th century and based their entire society around 
       conflict. They were led by William 'the Bastard' a 
       formidable, ruthless warrior, who was convinced that his 
       half-Norman cousin, Edward the Confessor, had promised him
       the throne of England. However, when Edward died in 
       January 1066, Harold Godwinson, the richest earl in the 
       land and the son of a pirate, took the throne . . . . this
       left William no choice but to forcibly claim what he 
       believed to be his right. What ensued was one of the 
       bloodiest periods of English history, with a body count 
       that might make even George RR Martin balk.
