Scene depicting the dead King Harold brought before William the Conqueror after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. In the central middleground, William sits astride his horse dressed in chain mail with bones hanging from a red cord around his neck. A number of his men, some of them wounded, are around him. The dead Harold is brought before him, carried by soldiers, crown on his head and a broken battle-axe still clenched in his hand.
