What was the advantages and disadvantages of the King and his earls in Anglo Saxon and Norman England?
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.
