About the Author

Introduction to the Normans

Viking raiders had been settling an area along the northern coast of France since the 870s, mixing with and living alongside the native Frankish inhabitants. In 910 CE, an infamously war-like Viking Jarl named Hrólfr, known as Rollo in Latin, assembled a small army with the intention of taking the English Channel coast of France. The contingent of Rollo’s Viking raiders who ultimately settled what would become Normandy included Norsemen like the Danes, Norwegians, Norse–Gaelic from Ireland, Norse-Scots from the Orkney Islands, Swedes, and Anglo-Danes from the Danelaw in England, which was effectively under Viking occupation.
