The House of Wessex

When King Edward the Confessor died in 1066, he made the fateful mistake of nominating two heirs to his throne; his distant kinsman William of Normandy and his unwitting brother-in-law Harold of Wessex. This blunder would ultimately be the Norman Conquest in 1066. The irony was that both men were not even the true heirs to the throne; instead the claim belonged to the young Edgar the Atheling who was bypassed due to his youth.
