  • Sex: M
  • Note: 1

    Stanhope, givign the ancestry of Guillaume de Bec, calls his father Hrolf Turstain (married to Gerlotte de Blois):
    Hrolf was named as Rollon in a charter of Charles III., 14/3/918, which referred to him and his followers as Northmen of the Seine. [Charter of Charles the Simple, ap. Bouquet, ix., p. 536.] That Hrolf was the same person as Rollo is sometimes questioned because of the difference between the two names: The Franks firstly gave Rolf an Old French form of his name, which they later latinized.
    Another argument for Hrolf not being Rollo is the apparent discrepancy between Norman and Norse accounts. Norman sources give Rollo a brother named Gurim, while the sagas give Hrolf several brothers, none of them named Gurim.
