Question: Do you think King Harold was running away and got it in the ar se!?
and someone like Peter Mandelson was on hand to spin the facts!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
According to norman accounts he died fighting was cut down by a knight who mutilated his body and was censured by William 1 for it !. The notion that he was killed by an arrow in the eye is due to an 18th C repair which makes a nearby knight originally holding a spear look like hes holding an arrow which has hit him in the eye!. If H had been running away when killed norman propaganda would have exploited the factWww@QuestionHome@Com

No one knows for sure, the popular tale states it was his eye but its really anyones guess, The Bayeux Tapestry depicts such an event but some historians argue the character may not be Harold!.


The Bayeux tapestry is a picture of eye witness accounts , The only spin doctors then were apothecariesWww@QuestionHome@Com
