INSPIRATION: BATTLE OF HASTINGS

As I mentioned in my previous posts, the king of my fantasy project will undertake a conquest in order to unite a fractured kingdom under his banner. In order to do that, he must fight the armies of the various factions in the kingdom he will rule. With this in mind, I have been imagining an epic battle between the king’s army and the combined armies of the other factions. This battle will serve as the climax of the king’s initial conquest. Even though the factions’ combined armies will outnumber his own, the king will have a little surprise up his sleeve. I have replayed the battle several times in my head and I get chills when I think about every conceivable detail. I am planning to draw inspiration for this battle from the real life Battle of Hastings, which was the battle that made William the Conquerer king of England.
