Richard of Normandy (c. 1054 to between 1069 and 1075) was the second son of William the Conqueror, King of England, and Matilda of Flanders.
Between 1069 and 1075 Richard died in a hunting accident in the New Forest. He was taken from the forest and buried at Winchester Cathedral. In a twist of fate, both a nephew, also named Richard, and a younger brother, King William Rufus, were themselves killed in the New Forest thirty years later.
