This Day, 974 Years Ago, April 3, 1043, ‘Edward The Confessor’ Was Crowned ‘King Of England’ In Winchester Cathedral.
I am not that au fait with all of the early English kings BUT I have read about ‘Edward’ and like what I have learned. Essentially the last but one English King prior to the Norman invasion of 1066.
I lived near Winchester from 1974 to 1981. Winchester Cathedral is very dear to I and I have spent a lot of time in it. Had a friend at IBM who was a campanologist at the Cathedral. He took me, for than once, up to bell tower to ring the bells with him and his other campanologists. That was always an experience.
