Who should be the next King?

Edward the ConfessorAfter the death of the childless, religiously pious Edward the Confessor who should be the next King of England?

Ask your students to work as members of the Witan to decide what skills the next King should have.

They then listen to three claimants via  ‘talking heads’  and assess each man’s claim against the chosen criteria.

They end by deciding who they think should be the next King of England.
