Dear Eadric cousin,
It seems that many people support Harold's claim to the throne, good, more people I can kill, more houses to burn, more women to enslave. This is a field day at the moment. The Pope has blessed my war so I draw my sword and lay down the gauntlet to you, cousin, I dare you to accept my challenge.
The great questions to this day shall not be settled by speeches or majority decisions, but by iron and blood!
May we meet on the battlefield,
King of England
Duke of Normandy
Cousins of the Fyrningas
