I am, likewise, a sympathizer of the good Anglo-Saxons. It is interesting to note that at the battle of Dyrrachium in 1081, between the invading Siculo-Normans of Robert Guiscard and the defending Romans under Alexios I, the Varangian Guard of the Roman Emperor was composed mostly of Anglo-Saxon exiles. They fought with such a vengeance against the Normans that they succeeded in throwing them back into the Adriatic Sea; alas, the Guiscard's wife, Sichelgaita, lead a courageous charge which broke the attack of the Varangian Guard.
