This was a help in my research on the creation of Normandie by the Viking Rolf/Rollo in the 9th century. She was careful to accredit only proven sources, which jibed with my other searches. The text does deal mainly with later generations after Rollo, and includes relationships. A true, scholar's work.

The search for Norman identity started at least over a century ago, when historians attempted to explain the extraordinary successes of the Normans. The most obvious of these is, of course, the conquest of Anglo-Saxon England, followed by their domination in parts of Wales and the conquest of parts of Ireland. A bit less well-known are the conquests of "The Normans in the South", where they established one of the most prosperous kingdoms of the Middle Ages during the XIIth century after conquering Southern Italy from the Byzantines and Lombards and Sicily from the Muslims, and the conquest of Antioch and its principality, by a scion of the family that took over the southern part of Italy.

Eleanor Searle's book concentrates on the Dukes of Normandy and presents what was a rather original thesis when this book was first published (in 1988). The "mainstream" view about the Normans (among both UK and French historians, in particular) and their Dukes is that their successes can mainly be explained by the ways and speed in which they integrated into the "Carolingian" world around the year 1000. The author largely challenges and disputes this, putting to the fore their Scandinavian "Viking" heritage, and showing to what extent this heritage seems to have been minimized, or even ignored, by many historians.

Hence her thesis about Norman power being established through predatory kinship, a kinship organized by and for the Dukes, supported by a number of powerful and closely associated families of warlords. This predatory kinship was relatively unstable and took time to build up and organize, as the author shows. It also relied on imposing peace within the Duchy, and predation outside it and, finally, its roots are part of the "Scandinavian" heritage of the Normans, much more than they are derived from the Carolingian world.

To back her views, the author does make some rather interesting points and come up with rather strong arguments. While I do not intend to paraphrase the contents of this book, at least two of them are worth mentioning and have been both supported and discussed by a number of authors since this book was first published. One is that, when Rollo and his warband established themselves in Rouen around 911, most of what was to become the Duchy of Normandy suffered from a power vacuum. There was no longer any Frankish aristocracy in place. Churches and monasteries had been repeatedly pillaged and burned by Viking raids because they were "soft and easy" targets, and also very rewarding ones. The other point is that, for several generations, in both France and in newly conquered England, "Norman" (which included a fair number of Bretons, Flemish and Franks, as well, especially close to the borders of the Normandy and in England after 1066) warriors and warlords were careful NOT to become either "Frankish" or "Anglo-Saxons".

While some of the author's views may have been criticized and could be seen as a bit far-fetched, they have the rare merit of showing that the "Norman Identity" debate, which has raged on among historians, is much more complicated than "Anglo-Saxon" or "French" historians initially made it out to be. The "Normans" who came over to England were not all from Normandy, but, among those who were, there certainly were some elements from their Scandinavian background, mixed up with the Frankish ones. In addition, the so-called "Anglo-Saxons" that the "Normans" conquered, were also a much more mixed bunch that this term suggests, and a more appropriate term might therefore be "Anglo-Danes", with the half-Dane Harold opposed to the Norman Duke of partly Danish descent being a prime example.

So, this is definitely a more complex "family" affair than what may appear at first, and a rather fascinating - if at times controversial - book about the creation of Norman power.

Unfortunately, this book is currently out of print and can only be sourced on both the UK and the US site at rather extravagant prices. I can only hope that it will be reprinted soon, as it is very much worth reading.

As a companion to this one, I can also recommend "Normandy before 1066" by David Bates, which shows, but from a French perspective this time, how the Duchy was built up and expanded between 911 and 1066 through the use of the Norman charters published in France. Both are valuable, if only because their perspectives are different.

Until the past couple of decades, historians of the Anglo-Norman period posited that upon acquiring territory in northwest Francia and being more or less accepted as local rulers by the Carolingian rulers, the dukes of Normandy adopted French titles, religion, and political methods, especially that of strategic marriage. Searle (and many scholars since) thought this was nonsense, pointing out that the land of which Rolf and his peers became overlords was inhabited only by peasant farmers; there was no existing power structure for them to learn from or conform to. Instead, the web of power relationships that developed in Normandy depended on acceptance of a Norman gens which was political, not biological. She also shows that, for a variety of reasons, the lesser Norman nobles recognized that their best chance for power lay in their support of a common ruler -- their duke -- even though he originally was merely their equal in power and authority. All this in interesting for its own sake, but its importance to us is that Searle traces in detail the interconnections among the descendants of Duke Richard I, both legitimate and not, and the collateral descendants of Richard's wife, Gunnor. This includes the Beaumonts, Giffards, Clares, Warennes, Mortimers, Montgomerys, Tonis, Montforts, FitzOsberns, and Vernons, as well as the lords of Evreux, Breteuil, Rouen, and Meulan (some of both lists overlapping for a few generations). The author's style is effortless and lucid, largely avoiding academic jargon and shorthand, making this a highly recommended study in the development and genealogy of the Normans as a people.

Zavevidi
Elanore Searle is spot on with her information regarding predatory kinship which was a practice that went back to Rollo the Dane. Guillaume le Batard a.k.a. the Conqueror along with his cousin Roger de Montgomery, who rode into Domfront & Alencon with no less than 50 men and took Mable de Belleme/ Bellesme/ Talvas. They were Dukes of Rouen not Dukes of Normandy. The Conqueror who gained at the expense of other Richardies, cut his teeth on Domfront and Alencon with his, "midnight runs" before turning his sites toward Engalnd. What's more is that there is currently a genetic study which links the information in Searle's book and the above mentioned families.
