The Roman Empire in Europe came under attack and the Romans left Britain in the Fifth Century. The Britons who remained were over time raided by Saxons from Germany who settled in this area and they were raided by Vikings from Scandinavia. The Saxon King Alfred reigned in Wessex in the Ninth Century but the Vikings returned and ruled from time to time until in 1066 the Saxon King Harold faced an invasion from William, the King of Normandy in France.
