The Godwins : The Rise and Fall of a Noble Dynasty, Paperback / softback Book

The Godwins : The Rise and Fall of a Noble Dynasty Paperback / softback

Part of the The Medieval World series


The family of Earl Godwin of Wessex stands among the most famous in English history, whose most famous son was King Harold. Frank Barlow charts the family through to Harold - the last Anglo-Saxon king - and finally the crowning of William the Conqueror during the Norman Conquest.

Set against the backdrop of Viking raids and ultimately the Norman Conquest of 1066, Frank Barlow unravels the gripping history of a feuding family that nevertheless determined the course and fortunes of all the English.
