Who got to decide who the next king should be? Edward died on 5 January, 1066. He had no children at the time, therefore there was a succession crisis. (Succession simply means the process that decides who should be the next king or queen and succeed the throne.) Sources, like the Bayeux Tapestry above, suggest that upon his death, Edward passed protection of England on to Harold Godwinson. However, Harold had competition from many other claims. Group Task In groups of three or four, research and evaluate the strength of one of the rival claims to the throne. Name of Claimant Claim (why does he

think he should be king?) Strength of claim Chance of Success throne by Edward Edgar Aethling Edwards nephew this meant he had royal blood. Strong claim related to the previous king and an heir is based on royal blood. Not the most powerful person. Lack of experience
