In January 1066 the [Witan] Council chose Harold [Godwinson] to become the next King of England. He was crowned quickly, the day after the death of [Edward] the Confessor. He was chosen because he was [English], a respected [earl] and a good soldier. However, on the eve of his coronation a [comet] was seen in the sky: a sign of [bad] luck for the new king. Neither Harald [Hardrada] nor William of [Normandy] accepted the decision of the Witan. Both men made plans to [invade] England and take the throne..
