Who Should Have Been King in 1066?

Answer

After the death of King Henry the Confessor in January 1066, there were many claimants who made convincing claims to the throne: William Duke of Normandy, Harold Earl of Wessex, Harald Hardrada King of Norway and Edward the King’s grandson. The eventual successor, Harold was however ousted by William the Conqueror after the Battle of Hastings, making him the new King of England.
