I will give him just six feet of English soil; or, since they say he is a tall man, I will give him seven feet!
Harold Godwinson when he heard Harald had invaded
Harald Sigurdsson was born in 1016. Harald became king of Norway in 1045 after the death of his nephew, becoming known as Hardrada (Hard-Ruler). When Edward the Confessor died in 1066, Harald claimed the English throne. He allied with Tostig, the exiled brother of Harold Godwinson and invaded England. When King Harold’s army arrived in Yorkshire, Hardradra’s army was surprised at a place called Stamford Bridge. Harald was killed in the fighting. He became known as ‘The Last Viking’, his death arguably bringing the Viking Age to an end.
