Best Answer

the Bayeux tapestry was biased because...

  • It was written in William's perspective
  • It was produced by nuns who were not part of the Battle, and therefore they would have just based their knowledge by hearing it.
  • The tapestry was build in France (Normandy) meaning that all the information used to make the tapestry was passed on by others and had probably been changed along the way.

Most history is written by the winning side and the Bayeux Tapestry is no exception. It was probably made for Bishop Odo who was also William the Conqueror's half-brother and later found in Bayeux Cathedral, also built by Odo.

Yes it may have been biased since the kite shaped shields for the Saxons and since they knew so much about the Normans and made Harold look bad.
