Who invaded England next?
In the ninth century (Year 800), 400 hundred years after the Anglo-Saxons invaded England, the country came under attack from Viking raiders from Norway and northern Denmark.

Like the Anglo-Saxons, they made there home here. They drove the Saxons out of part of the country and took it for themselves.

King Alfred, Saxon king of Wessex, fought them in a great battle, but he could not drive them right away and had to let them have part of the country, called Danelaw.

Parts of England were now ruled by the Vikings whilst others were ruled by the Saxons.

Who was the last Saxon King and where did he die?
In 1066, the last Anglo Saxon king of England died at the Battle of Hastings. His name was King Harold.

William from Normandy ( France) became the new King and replaced all the Anglo Saxon lords with Norman ones and so brought Anglo Saxon times to an end.
