Medieval Word of the Day

Unlike my previous novels, which took place in PoitouDangerous Favor takes place in Normandy.

Normandy: A region of northern France bordering the English Channel, ruled by Henry II of England during the Middle Ages; assigned inheritance of Henry’s eldest son, Henry, the Young King (along with England and Anjou)

Rouen: Capital of Normandy

You can see Normandy on this map directly across the channel from England (D. of Normandie)

I LOVE your medieval words of the day. I knew where Normandy was but not Poitou was so thanks for the cool map.
