No this is no simplification. Although there is some debate, several Norman sources say he originated from Faxe in Denmark - none directly say he originated from Norway. I know this is no proof of anything, but there is a recent memorial stone in Faxe of Rollo: It reads: Rolf of Faxe, called Rollo, founded Normandy 911 AD Other sources speak of a Hrolf Grange of Iceland, who may have been Rollo, but it is also likely that these were two completely different men who both settled in Normandy. I am sorry if I once again let my emotions run away with me earlier but I still disagree with Öjevind Lång on the Greenlandic points (some unnamed Greenlandic websites don't prove anything). I don't believe I have 'glorified' Denmark, as I have been accused of. Any simplifications I have made have been to make a point - something I realise is a mistake, and something I have apologised for, and apologise for again now. I have no intention of getting into arguments or flame wars with anyone and I once again apologise for stepping on people's toes. Also, the accusation that I am patriotic or 'transferred nationalist' or whatever is so stupid... I am about as left wing as you can possibly get. I simply believe Danish history to be very overlooked and neglected.
