This cross stitch pattern chart comes from the large pattern chart created by Frédérique Crestin-Billet evoking the Bayeux Tapestry. It depicts a particular scene of the battle of Hastings. Here, one of the determining passages in the Battle of Hastings, with the outcome of William being crowned King of England. On the left, Odo, who as a bishop is not armed, encourages the the soldiers. On the far right, William raises his helmet to show his face to the soldiers. Having previously fallen from his horse, a rumour had spread that he had been killed and his army started to retreat. He catches up with the soldiers and proves he is alive. As everyone knows, Harold and two of his brothers were killed during this famous battle. This scene from the Battle of Hastings is much shorter than on the original tapestry. You will notice archers in the border alongside the regrettable large number of cadavers, victims of the battle. Even if they are embroidered in reduced size, you can notice the realism of the postures of the corpses, and even the head separated from its’ torso…
