Episode 32: Stamford Bridge is Falling Down

Foreigners you (can)t trust them....

Well, it's been a long journey to get to this point. 1066 has begun with style - and a spear up the bum

Important People:

  • King Edward - the focus of the episode
  • Queen Edith - Edward's wife and moderately powerful force behind the throne
  • Earl Eadwine - The mildly disloyal earl of Mercia
  • Gruffydd ap Lywelyn - The first (and possibly only) king of Wales
  • Harold Godwineson - The de facto leader of the Godwine clan
  • Tostig Godwineson - Harold's younger, feuding, brother
  • Earl Morcar - the "rebel's choice" earl of Northumbria.
