Rollo, also known as Hrolf the Ganger or Rollon, 1st Duke of Normandy from 911 to 927. He was also called Rolf the Walker, because, being so tall, he preferred to go afoot rather than ride the little Norwegian horses. Originally a Norse Viking, he was noted for strength and martial prowess. He was born in 846 and died in 932, and was buried in the Cathedral at Rouen. (I doubt that he looked like this in real life )
