Accompanied Osegod back to the battlefield of Senlac to idenitfy Harold's body which was then given wrapped in a purple cloth to William Malet and laid to rest under a stone of a high point of the cliffs of Fairlight. 122

      Paul Mc Bride's pages state Edith and Ealdgyth are the same, both married to Harold and Llewelyn, having one child, Gytha
      Mike Ashley states that Edith was the widow of Llewelyn and when Harold killed him in battle, he took that Edith for a wife even though he already had Edith Swan neck as wife, whom he loved dearly and had six children with.
      Denis Butler states his first wife was Eadgyth Swanneshals or Edith of the Swan neck (probably born in Norfolk and of good family), and his contemplation of an additional marriage to Llewelyn's widow, Alditha, in order to seek an alliance with her brothers, Edwin and Morcar (Morkere). He indicates Harold may have married her immediately after his coronation.
      The Mormon Church has three marriages listed for Harold:(9NR3-RF)

      Edith, unknown parents, marriage abt 1045, six children starting in 1047: Godwine, Edmund, Magnus, Gyda (marrying Vladmir), Gunhild

      Ealdgyth, daughter of Alfgar, marriage abt 1064, two children listed starting 1065, Ulf and Harold.
