Lady Edith or Edith Swan Neck

Lady Edith – Edith Swan Neck

Lady Edith or Edith Swan Neck as she is often called, is one of the very few women thought to be depicted in the Bayeux Tapestry or to feature in the 1066 story at all.

Our Battle of Hastings Collection has been conceived to mirror the narrative style of the Bayeux Tapestry, telling the story of one of the country’s most famous battles through a series of figures and vignettes. The palette is also tightly controlled and focuses on colours similar to those in the Tapestry itself, so comprises Chestnut Brown, Russet, soft Charcoal Grey, Dark Green, Coral and Black.

Currently numbering five different figures – the latest for 2015 is Bishop Odo, Earl of Kent and former Bishop of Bayeux – this series is still being developed with new figures in the pipeline. Her natural partner in display terms is Harold, who you can see if you click here.
