In Normandy, France, 
lived a duke called 
William the "bastard" 
1065
In England a childless 
King called Edward "the 
confessor" died
Harold, the dead king’s 
brother-in-law, took 
possession of the throne
But formerly Edward had 
promised William, the Duke 
of Normandy, that he 
would be his successor... 
So William wanted to 
be King of England
This is the earliest comic strip in the world: the " Bayeux Tapestry ": Queen 
Matilda, William’s wife, tells us Harold’s story
Harold, the new king, 
enjoyed his job 
very much !
William determined to 
throw him off the trone ! 
His plan was to attack 
England from the SOUTH 
and the SAME DAY, his 
friend the King of Norway, 
richly rewarded, would 
attack from the NORTH 
Harold ??? 
William 
King of 
Norway
During that winter William ordered a great many ships to be built to 
invade England...Hundred of trees were cut down...
On D day the King 
of Norway was alone 
when he attacked 
Harold near York because 
in the south there was no 
wind at all! The 
Duke’s sailing boats 
couldn’t move ! 
? 
1066 
William
Harold and his 
army, defeated the 
King of Norway who 
returned home ! 
Norway 
Harold 
? 
William
Slowly the wind began blowing...so William could attack England from the south...but 
there was no-one to fight against ? Nobody knew William was waiting in Hastings !
Harold was very 
tired. It was bad 
news when he was 
told that the Duke 
of Normandy 
awaited him in 
Hastings 
Harold

William
Harold had to fight but 
he couldn’t because his 
army was exhausted ! So 
he decided to build a 
sort of wooden castle 
near Hastings to protect 
himself. William didn’t 
know what to do.

A rough and bloody battle !

King of England 
From this day on 
he was called 
"William the Conqueror" 
© Charlie
He ordered the building of the Tower of London -the White Tower- from 
where he ruled a brand new England composed of many shires controlled 
by sheriffs...He decided the French Language would be the official 
language of England ! A strange story to be told !
