Who were the normans

Who were the Normans?

The Normans were originally Vikings from Scandinavia

At the beginning of the tenth century the French King, Charles the Simple, gave them some land in the North of France hoping that they would stop attacking France

The land was first known as Northmannia, the land of the Northmen, but this was later shortened to Normandy

By the year 1000, they were no longer Viking pagans but French speaking Christians.
