For those of you not familiar with the colonization by the Vikings of Normandy starting in 911.

This is also why you have two capitals; Rouen for Haute-Normandie, and Caen, home of William the Conqueror, for Basse-Normandie.

Damien Frébourg "«Haute Normandie» was mainly Danish and «Basse Normandie» was Norwegian mostly in Contentin. Basse and Haute Normandie was a recent creation in 1956....Now it's finished since 2014"
