The Normans Win The Battle Of Hastings
William had won the Battle of Hastings - he was the Conqueror!
"Then he returned thanks to God, and in his pride ordered his standard to be brought and set up on high, where the English standard had stood; and that was the signal of his having conquered, and beaten down the standard.
And he ordered his tent to be raised on the spot among the dead, and had his meat brought thither, and his supper prepared there. Then he took off his armor; and the barons and knights, pages and squires came, when he had unstrung his shield; and they took the helmet from his head and the hauberk from his back, and saw the heavy blows upon his shield and how his helmet was dinted in. And all greatly wondered and said: 'Such a baron never bestrode war-horse nor dealt such blows nor did such feats of arms. Neither has there been on earth such a knight since Rollant and Oliver.'
Thus they lauded and extolled him greatly and rejoiced in what they saw, but grieving also for their friends who were slain in the battle.
And the Duke stood meanwhile among them, of noble stature and mien, and rendered thanks to the King of Glory, through whom he had the victory, and thanked the knights around him, mourning also frequently for the dead. And he ate and drank among the dead, and made his bed that night upon the field.
