The family of Earl Godwin of Wessex stands among the most famous in English history, whose most famous son was King Harold.

This text charts the family through to Harold and finally the crowning of William the Conquerer during the Norman Conquest.

Set against the backdrop of Viking raids and ultimately the Norman Conquest of 1066, Frank Barlow unravels the history of a feuding family that nevertheless determined the course and fortunes of all the English.
