Here are a few things that I managed to get from Pearsons. Hope it helps! Advantages:  As a religious leader, people believed that God was guiding him.  He was respected as a wise lawmaker.  He was married to Edith, daughter of the rich and powerful Earl of Godwin. Disadvantages:  He had been exiled in Normandy for most of his life, so had few supporters in England.  He had no children to succeed him.  He struggled to keep control of Earl Godwin.
