King Harold is Crowned

Yesterday, 5 January, was the anniversary of the death of the long-reigning Harold's Coronation (2)King, Edward the Confessor.   His new Abbey at Westminster, although not completely finished, was sufficiently ready to be used for his funeral.

Today, 6 January, is the anniversary of the Coronation of his successor, King Harold II, the last Anglo Saxon King of England.   Formerly Earl of East Anglia and Earl of Wessex, Harold Godwinesson was crowned in Westminster Abbey.
