Note it is : Harald Hardrada (not) Harold Hardraada

Harald Sigurdsson (1015 - September 25, 1066), was the king of Norway from 1047 until 1066. He was also claimed to be the King of Denmark until 1064 and was later given the epithet Hardrada.

He is generally remembered for his invasion of England in 1066. He won his first battle, the Battle of Fulford, south of York, on 20 September. However he was then defeated and killed at the Battle of Stamford Bridge, outside the city of York, England, on 25 September 1066. Harald's death is often recorded as the end of the Viking era.

At the Battle of Stamford Bridge, Harald Sigurdsson fought Harold Godwinson, King of England and it was this Harold who was defeated (and killed) at The Battle of Hastings by William the Conqueror on 14 October 1066.

William, and here one must assume you are referring to Duke William of Normandy, was not even in England at the time of the Battle of Stamford between Harold II and Harold Hardrada of Norway.
