Description

THE STORY THAT HAS NEVER BEEN TOLD! Even rarer than the appearance of Halley's Comet in the year 1066 A.D. was the appearance of three undefeated warrior kings that same year. All three of these warrior kings felt that they had a claim to the British crown, and all three were intrepid fighters who were well known for never taking a step backward. For this reason 1066 was a historical year unlike any other. Normandy's William the Conqueror is one of the most dashing, powerful, and massively influential figures in all of world history. Equally fascinating is Harold Godwinson, crowned King Harold II of England in January of 1066. Norway's Haarald (Hard Rule) Hardrada, the incomparable Viking warrior king, also played a central role in the destiny of the world in that amazing year. These two historical giants, William and Harold, became the greatest of friends -- and the worst of enemies. Caught in the middle of this raging storm that resulted in The Battle of Hastings was Princess Adelize, the young and beautiful daughter of William, and the devoted fiance of King Harold II. Humor! Heart! History! These are the three words that define this historical saga that is written in the style of an Arthurian adventure novel. "I have boundless admiration for these historical figures whose feats and sacrifices were second to none in world history, and aspired for all I am worth and stand for in this life to bring to the reader their timeless story in a manner that the reader would find both informative and entertaining. That is why I wrote this book." Jesse Lee Vint IIIshow more
