French Agreed to Check King Rollo's DNA

Quote:
The French government is positive to be investigated whether normann king Rollo is identical with the Norwegian Viking chieftain Gange-Rolv.

The question of kinship is also interesting because Rollo the forefather of the British royal family. Danish historians claim that Rollo is of Danish origin. But if it turns out that Rollo, and Rollo is one and the same person, and that the British royal line thus has its origins in western Norway in Norway, the story must be rewritten.

It has long been uncertain about the Norwegian and French experts would be allowed from the official French hold to have opened a crypt in Fécamp in northern France to look for the answer. The purpose is to extract DNA samples of skeletal remains to Rollo's son's son and grandson, respectively RikardI and RikardII. Both resting in a sarcophagus under a floor in a Benedictine monastery in the French coastal town northeast of Le Havre.
French enthusiasm

- We consider finally the possibility to be good to find Rollo DNA, and thus shed light on whether he was of Danish or Norwegian origin, says Sturla Ellingvåg the research foundation Explioco. Together with Professor Per Holck from the anatomical institute, the National Hospital in Oslo, Ellingvåg recently conducted several interviews with French authorities about the case.

- We had very positive meetings with the local city government in Rouen and Fécamp, and felt we were met with enthusiasm from the French side. After the long wait is about to become a French-Norwegian cooperation project. It is also supported by the Norwegian Embassy in Paris, which was represented at the meetings, said Ellingvåg.


Rollo, as the French sculptor Arsene Letellier imagined him. The statue stands in Ålesund, and was a gift to the city in 1911, in connection with the 1000-year anniversary of the founding of Normandy. The original statue is at the dealer, the city of Rouen

Opening in July?

According Ellingvåg have to get through a month-long approval period in France. But the Norwegians have received signals that you want to get an answer before the French beginning of summer.

- If so, we travel to France in the first half of July. When the sarcophagus will be opened and the samples will be taken in cooperation with several French researchers. If everything goes as planned we will announce the first results of the survey in 1100-year anniversary of Rollo and the Scandinavian establishment of their own area of ​​Normandy in late September this year, says Ellingvåg.
Viking DNA

The latest DNA technology is used. In principle, one would rather have taken samples directly from Rollo himself, but no remains of him, which can be used to extract DNA, is preserved. Previously, genetic tests have revealed differences in DNA between the Norwegian and Danish Vikings. On this basis it is believed that the samples from Fécamp can clarify the origin. In the years prior to the 1000-year anniversary of the Duchy of Normandy in 1911, there was a fierce battle between the Danish and Norwegian historians about Rollo origin. The answer, perhaps we can get now.

Rollo, founder of the Duchy of Normandy: was he a Dane or a Norwegian?

The results of the DNA testing of Rollo's descendants will be very interesting. As the article says, whether the Normans were the descendants of Danish or Norwegian Vikings has been hotly disputed between Danish and Norwegian historians. Should we run a book on the results of the tests?

Seriously, though, the results of this DNA testing will be fascinating and historically significant.

All right, I'll start. I've got $100 on Rollo being a Norwegian.

Oslaf has earned the respect of peers.

Danish or Norwegian, it's still an intriguing question.

I'm surprised how well Norwegian translates into English on Google.

Does anyone know the results of this investigation in northern France and the DNA analysis? It's been almost a year since the proposal to investigate and test the DNA of Rollo's descendants was reported.

Found this earlier, it is Rollo's family line, it goes all the way back from Rognvald Earl of more to Yngvi Frey and Njord of Sweden, how accurate this all is is anybody's guess though!

Good work, H. My money is still on him being a Norwegian.

I wouldn't want to be the one opening the sarcophagus in Fécamp after almost 1200 years. They're brave.

The reply I received from professor Per Holck:

"Unfortunately, the French authorities have not yet given us the necessary go-ahead, despite two years of negotiations. But we live in hope. We also need financial support for the project (DNA testing of old bone is expensive!), Which does not so readily available, unfortunately."
