...I'm willing to ignore it all if they'd just stop calling Harold "usurper" - so annoying!

Gyrth:

Harold was certainly not a "usurper"; he came to the throne in what, for England was a perfectly legal manner. The problem was, that he didn't have any direct claim, but when did that ever stop anyone in medieval times? I don't think the WRTF can answer this one, either. BTW, if anybody was a "usurper", it was William, not Harold, though William had a tenuous claim through his great-aunt Emma.

Anne, Gyrth, Athelstan

Regarding the WTFDunce 'forum' of one lonely and arrogant boy, we're going round in circles here.

He is a dumb and pretencious troll with no website of his own to destroy, and doesn't want to understand or absorb our 200% more accurate and relevant threads.

Clearly he is getting off on deliberately posting woefully-inept trash, then anticipating the inevitable reaction- seeing you three raise enough blood pressure to rival Pompeii...

Perhaps then, if s/he really is a troll, then we should just ignore him/her/it and start looking at some really interesting questions about this period. If s/he wants to join in and try to discuss things intelligently, then s/he is welcome. Otherwise, don't bother.

Exactly as a tired and frustrated teacher would do to a mardy and spoilt primary schoolchild, until they learn that their immature and brattish mis-behaviour does not command attention, and that he/she has thus been disempowered?

Re: Hugues de Cluny


Housecarl, Athelstan

Your personalised attacks on our Forum do lack prudence, you know. Indeed, you wear your slander and falsification like the mark of Cain. In exhibiting yourselves thus, you make of yourselves wild bores and one is utterly aware of what happens to wild bores. If one were charitable, one might observe that if you continue to pump yourselves up with bile, and precious little else, at your current rate of regress, you will surely explode sooner or later. In that context, one recalls the immortal words of Jeanne D’Arc, “Sooner is better than later”.

Re: Hugues de Cluny


Blah blah blah, pretencious, irrelelvant blah blah WTF blah...



Sweyn Forkbeard led a "[sign in to see URL]"!
******************
He died in 1016!
******************
His brother was killed in the [sign in to see URL]'s day massacre of 1002!
******************
Despite being elected King by the witanagemot in England, january 1066- both legal and popular- King Harold II was a 'usurper'!
******************
William did not fear or grudgingly respect the fearsome reputation and capabilities of King Harold II & the Saxon army at all(seen in 1064 by him), so he landed at Pevensey [sign in to see URL] hugged the English south coast for three weeks before moving inland!
******************
William offered King Harold(famed for his strength, courage and martial ability) a duel prior to Hastings, and he declined!
******************
William was one of the four knights(derived from an English word) that slew King Harold- then decided not to shout about it to the world afterwards!
******************
William led an invasion partly to bring the 'corrupt' English church in line with Rome- despite William allowing Stigand (whom the papal legates to England in 1062 took no action against).... to remain Archbishop until 1070!

Re: Hugues de Cluny


Lydia such words do not befit a lady!Personalised attacks eh! Something no decent Norman would ever descend to!
Our attacks as you call them are in fact a response to your extreme distortion of events and even your conjuring up of events manufactured from the ether of historical baloney to suit your tirades.
Are you talking about 'bores' which have geological meanings or someone who bores the pants off people by whining on about something others have no interest in (which you would well understand)? Or are you referring to 'boars' a wild animal related to pigs?.
Joan of Arc as I recall was defeated by the English or perhaps I am wrong and that she was a descendant of Adela de Bois' housemaid and sacrificed herself as a martyr to Revolutionary Cluniacism.
Fascinating!

Athelztan and all:

Joan of Arc sacrificed herself for something, but unlike the WRTF, I don't think it was "revolutionary Cluniacism", which in any case, by that time, was a dead issue. . . .
