The book presents the novel “Harold, The Last Of The Saxon Kings”.
A fascinating fictionalised story of the life of Harold Godwinson, the last Anglo-Saxon King of England, written by bestselling novelist and coiner of such phrases as "the pen is mightier than the sword" and "It was a dark and stormy night," Edward Bulwer-Lytton.
Harold Godwinson, (1022 – October 14, 1066 A.D.) also known as Harold II, is widely regarded as the last Anglo-Saxon King of England before the Norman Conquest. Harold reigned from January 5 1066 until his death at the Battle of Hastings on 14 October of that same year, fighting the Norman invaders, led by William the Conqueror.
