The Mysterious Lady - Scene 1

William and Harold ride with soldiers to Williamsís palace at Rouen (Now William has the hawk!). William sits while Harold talk to him. The mysterious incident on the far right seems to have nothing to do with the main story, but it may have been well known in the 11th century. It might refer to a sexual scandal - the man in the lower border is naked in the original tapestry, but he has been provided with shorts by the Victorian embroiderers who made this copy.
