1035-1087 Normandy Silver Rouen Denier Of William NGC XF45
Silver Deniers Struck Under the First Norman King of England!
On October 14th, 1066, a brutal battle raged near Hastings. William the Conqueror and his Norman army, having invaded England weeks earlier, were engaged in battle with the forces of the newly crowned King Harold. At stake was the English throne -- originally reserved for William by Edward the Confessor. However, right before he died, Edward granted the crown to Harold Godwinson, resulting in a dispute that would bring both to the battlefield. By evening, the last Anglo-Saxon king lay dead on the ground with an arrow to the eye. As the victor, William the Conqueror would become England's first Norman king, ruling until his death in 1087 -- thus beginning one of the most transformative and influential eras in British history.
