Rollo ( 846 – c. 932), baptised Robert and so sometimes numbered Robert I to distinguish him from his descendants, was a Norse Viking who was founder and first ruler of the Viking principality which soon became known as Normandy. His descendants were the Dukes of Normandy, and following the Norman conquest of England in 1066, kings of England.

    Rollon1 (mort entre 928 et 933) est le chef viking à l'origine du duché de Normandie. En 911, en contrepartie de l'arrêt de ses pillages, il reçoit du roi Charles le Simple un territoire autour de Rouen. Environ cent ans plus tard, cette concession deviendra le duché de Normandie. Il est assez difficile de fixer la trame de la vie de Rollon, car elle est également l'objet de récits légendaires.
