This is not meant to be a timeline, because I don't know the answers, but WI Tostig and Harald Hardrada beat Harold [Tostig's Brother] at Stamford Bridge, and Harold dies. [of an arrow in his eye, or whatever] Now, what do they do? Go south and fight William the bastard at Hastings? Or do they share power with him or what. One of my favourite PODs is for the Norman French influence to be kept out of England, so lets see if someone can come up with a credible scenario for this, based on a different outcome at S. B.
