The Normans

Poll #1666256 The Normans

Were the Normans 1064-1086

Right but Repulsive
2(16.7%)
Wrong but Romantic
1(8.3%)
Both Repulsive AND Wrong
9(75.0%)

Which one SHOULD have been king in 1067?

Harald Hardrada
2(14.3%)
Harold Godwinsson
4(28.6%)
William the Bastard
3(21.4%)
Edgar the atheling
5(35.7%)
The second one is checkboxes in case anyone feels strongly that the whole Northumbria/Mercia/Wessex/Anglia/Kent merger was a horrible mistake and wishes to argue for more than one king.
