I am not a native English speaker, so maybe my question is just silly but here it is: is there (or was there in the past) a noun different from the adjective to mean a Norwegian person? I mean, in English you have Swede and Swedish, Dane and Danish, but only Norwegian. Was there something equivalent in the past and perhaps it just died out? Thanks!
I think this is a great sentence. In response to an earlier post, yeah Normandy was given to Rollo by King Charles the Simple of France (verification needed) as a bribe to stop him pilfering and generally being unpleasant. Rollo also had to aid in the defence of France from other sticky-fingered vikings. I imagine it was a bit of a loss of face when Bjørn Ironsides faked his own death to gain access to the city of Paris.
