Travelling from Charles De Gaulle To Normandy? The storied region of Normandy owes its name to the Viking settlers from the 9th century, also known as “the Northmen”, who invaded the region which became a duchy under Robert of Normandy in the 10th century.
From contacts between Viking settlers and local Franks and Gallo-Romans rose an ethnic group of Normans. During the following centuries, Normans have greatly expanded their territories, including England and Wales, but also Southern Italy and Sicily, and Antioch in Turkey.
During the 13th century Norman king of England, John Lackland, has lost Normandy to French king Philip III. Efforts to regain the Normandy and subsequently ascend to the throne of France by the house of Plantagenets has later became known as the Hundred’s Years War.
Today, Normandy is the best known for the events from WWII. For the failed Dieppe Raid on 19 August 1942, and as the place of the Allied invasion and D-Day landings of Operation Overlord, on 6 June 1944.
The invasion which produced more than 10,000 Allied casualties, and opening of the Western Front which lead to Nazi Germany surrender less than a year later.
