What happened when rollo the viking settled in Normandy?

Rollo of Normandy was a Viking. The better question is this: When did Rollo the Viking become Rollo of Normandy? Normandy was the title of the land granted to Rollo and his raiders after they threatened to sack Paris. The king of France, out of fear, gave the Viking raiders a piece of land on the northern coasts (called Nova Britannia at the time) that would later be called Normandy. Normandy means "Land of the North (or Norse) Man," i.e., the Vikings. Hope this helps!
