  • ID: I46365
  • Name: Torf ?The Rich? de Harcourt
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: 928 in Normandy, France
  • Note: 1

    He was a great Norman feudal baron. Probably he was a grandson of one of the viking chiefs of Scandinavia who accompanied Rollo ABT 900 A.D. in the Norse invasion of northern France where they permanently settled and gave to the country its name "Normandy". Torf possessed numerous lordships in Normandy, being Seigneur de Torville, Torcy, Torny, Torly, du Ponteautord, etc. It has been suggested that he was a son of Bernard the Dane, the most powerful of the feudal nobles of Normandy during the reign of Duke William I (b. 927 - d. 943) and Regent during the minority of Duke Richard I (b. 943 - d. 955); but this claim has not been proved.
