The Battle of Hastings

14th October 1066

The Battle of Hastings in 1066 is without a doubt one of the most significant events in English history. The battle took place during the Norman invasion of England, following the death of Edward the Confessor, which ignited a three-way rivalry for the English throne. Harold II was killed in the battle—legend has it that he was shot through the eye with an arrow.
