A broken friendship and political machinations are at the heart of THE CONQUEST, a retelling of the Norman conquest of England in the year 1066. William the Bastard, Duke of Normandy, and Harold Godwinson, Earl of Wessex, were friends and allies who find themselves pitted against the other in the fight for the throne of England. Both with a claim and both strengthened by their belief that they are the rightful ruler, they are led through ill council and propaganda towards war. Their wives – royal Matilda of Flanders and common-law lady Edith Swanneck  – manage their own agendas as the tragic events of the Battle of Hastings unfold.
