(c. 860–931)

Leader of a band of Vikings that invaded north-western France. In 912 as Duke Robert he accepted Normandy as a duchy from the French king Charles III and was baptized, but remained quite independent of French authority. He married a French princess, gave parcels of land in Normandy to his followers, and began the long chapter of Norman influence on Europe.
