In the Middle Ages England was, under the Anglo-Saxon leadership, the centre of the courtly civilisation in Europe. But when the last Anglo-Saxon king passed without a descendant, a terrible battle about the succession broke out.

At October 14th in 1066, exactly 942 years ago, the first big combat took place: William the Conqueror of Normandy asserted his claims on the English throne: One of the grimmest battles of the Middle Ages broke out.
