Description MS C: In this year the king [Edward 15] was at Winchester at Easter, and Earl Godwine 51 with him, and Earl Harold 3 his son and Tosti 2. Then on Easter Monday as he was sitting with the king at a meal, he suddenly sank towards the foot-stool, bereft of speech and of all his strength. Then he was carried to the king’s private room and they thought it was about to pass off. But it was not so. On the contrary, he continued like this without speech or strength right on to the Thursday and then lost his life.
