The Bayeux Tapestry
The Bayeux Tapestry, also known as Queen Mathilde tapestry would have been ordered by Odon de Bayeux, half brother of Guillaume the Conqueror. The legend says that it is queen Mathilde, helped by her ladies, who made it. It describes the Norman conquest of England in 1066. It details the key events like the battle of Hastings. The Bayeux Tapestry has an inestimable documentary value for the knowledge of the Norman and English XIth century. The tapestry is registered since 2007 on the Unesco World Report.
