The crowning ceremony of King Harold II takes place on the 5th January 1066, at Westminster Abbey. We see Harold seated on the throne, holding the orb and sceptre and wearing the royal Crown of State. Stigand, Archbishop of Canterbury, stands to Harold’s right with a maniple draped over his right hand. Stigand proclaims Harold King of England. Stigand became Archbishop of Canterbury after first holding the title of Bishop of Winchester. He received the pallium from Benedict X in 1058 but it was rescinded after Benedict was deposed. He was chaplain to King Canute and later to his son, Harold Harefoot.
