Product Description
This is a 17 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on The Norman Conquest. All the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.

The Norman Conquest was the final act of a complicated drama that had begun years earlier, in the reign of Edward the Confessor, last king of the Anglo-Saxon royal line.

Edward, who had almost certainly designated William as his successor in 1051, was involved in a childless marriage and used his lack of an heir as a diplomatic tool, promising the throne to different parties throughout his reign, including Harold Godwineson, later Harold II, the powerful Earl of Wessex.

The exiled Tostig, who was Harold’s brother, and Harold III Hardraade, king of Norway, also had designs on the throne and threatened invasion. Amid this welter of conflicting claims, Edward from his deathbed named Harold his successor on Jan. 5, 1066, and Harold was crowned king the following day.

However, Harold’s position was compromised, according to the Bayeux Tapestry and other Norman sources, because in 1064 he had sworn an oath, in William’s presence, to defend William’s right to the throne.

The presentation covers the following:

Lacking an Heir
Would be Suitors
Harold’s Challenges
William Attacks
Death of Harold
William Becomes King
Changes by William
Aristocracy Replaced
English Local Government
Innovative Laws
Ecclesiastical Laws
Church Structure Changed
Replacing Abbots & Monks
Regrettable Change
