Description[edit | edit source]

After several devastating Viking raids on what is today northern France and a siege of Paris, the Frankish king Charles the Simple granted the Viking leader Rollo a fiefdom in the area. This fief evolved into the Duchy of Normandy, of which the most famous duke is William II "the Conqueror" who invaded England in 1066.
