Normandy covers both the region of Upper Normandy Rouen and around the valley of the Seine and other Lower Normandy around Caen and the Cotentin Auge.

Roman, it then passes into the kingdom of Syagrius before being occupied by the Franks from 486. Ravaged by the incursions of the Normans, the region is recognized by their Charles the Simple. The Dukes of Normandy were then allies of the first Capetians and are in the eleventh century to the head of a state among the richest and best organized administratively Europe also shows that expansion into southern Italy and England. In the French monarchy, Normandy care institutions, for example the maintenance of the Exchequer, or customary law as codified in the "Grand Customary".
