THE NORMANS

As I contemplate on the various background characters for my fantasy series, I look at historically significant medieval cultures for inspiration. Because I will be basing my main character on William the Conquerer, Duke of Normandy and King of England, I decided to model his first allies on the culture of the Normans. Due to their affiliation with William the Conquerer, the Normans played a significant role in the creation of medieval Europe. With this in mind, I am planning on having my main character’s allies deliver a similar impact on the rest of the kingdom when he begins his conquest.
