whose son Hrolf, with his followers...in 911 settled in the district later
known as Normandy."
Roots: Ganger Rolf, "the Viking (or Rollo), banished from Norway to the
Hebrides ca. 876; 890 participated in Viking attack on Bayeux, where Count
Berenger of Bayeux was killed, and his daughter Poppa taken, 886, by Rollo (now
called Count of Rouen) as his "Danish" wife. Under Treaty of St. Clair, 911,
received the Duchy of Normandy from Charles III, "the Simple."
Davis: Rollo, ruler of Normandy from 911-931. The dukes of Normandy free
married with non-Scandinavians. "Rollo is said to have married the daughter of
the Frankish king and to have had his son by the daughter of a Frankish count.
That son, William, married the daughter of a Frankish count and had his son,
Richard, by a Breton. None of the dukes' wives came from Scandinavia or
England, and by the first half of the 11th century their family connections
were typically French." An early historian, Dudo, said Rollo was Danish.
Ashley: Count Rolllo or Rolf the Viking., died 993?
Norr: Rollo or Rolf, 1st duke of Normandy 912-917-(927), born about 856. He
was of the same Danish origin as the ancestors of the English which his
descendants conquered in 1066.
