Overview
Wulf the Saxon: A Story of the Norman Conquest, by G.A. Henty, tells the story of a young Saxon thane and his faithful follower, Osgod, in their allegience to Harold Godwinson, future King of England. Before their adventure, the previous king, King Edward the Confessor, foolishly promised his throne - the throne of all England - to William the Norman. The throne, however, was not His to give, for only the people of England were to choose their ruler. Thus, when Edward died, the people choose a very qualified Harold Godwinson. Enraged and feeling betrayed, William and his army invade England to claim the crown - by force. Will Wulf and Osgod be able to help King Harold in the struggle to keep England free? This book includes descriptions of life in 11th century England, how the Battle of Hastings dramatically altered the course of British history, and more than 150 geographical, historical, and explanatory footnotes to aid the modern reader.
