The Norman Conquest of 1066 was not the only ‘Conquest’ of the eleventh century; 50 years before William I’s victory at Hastings, the ‘Viking Conquest’ of 1016 made Cnut king of Denmark and England. This book argues that the consequences of that earlier conquest, including the exile of the Anglo-Saxon heirs to the English throne and the entanglement of English, Norman and Scandinavian politics, led to the defeat of Harold Godwinson in 1066.
