The King Is Dead, Long Live the King
Harold Godwinson, so long the Bookies favourite, has been confirmed as King by the Witan.
A spokesperson for Bet Aelfred said that 83% of the bets on who would be crowned King were for Harold Godwinson, 11% of the bets were placed on Harald Hardrada, mainly drawing on his Northern supporters, 5% placed on Duke William, by those with an eye for a killing and 1% on the unknown Edgar the Atheling, a rank outsider.
Bet Aelfred will now be taking bets on who will be King at the end of the year.
