However, the Bayeux Tapestry was commissioned by Bishop Odo, Williamโ€™s half-brother in the 1070s. As Sir Winston Churchill later said, โ€œHistory is written by the victors.โ€

The poem tells of the knights hacking Harold to pieces. What credence should be given to this evidence? Is a poem a valid source? Does this account present the Norman knights as calculating and brutal? Would the Normans have preferred the story of an arrow guided by Godโ€™s hand, into Haroldโ€™s eye, to justify Williamโ€™s claim to the throne?
