(28) one of the claimants is known as Harold Godwinson, who is your Earl Harold, but people don't call him that in the UK. Likewise Harald Hardrada over 'King Hardrada'. I think the correct answer rate is so low because Edward the Confessor left a number of claimants, of whom Harold Godwinson triumphed over Harald Hardrada and then lost to William, but was king for most of the year 1066, so that he is a more obvious answer to the question.
