Re: Re : Re the date of St. Clare"s death
Normandy is a not a prefecture, The Normand prefecture ajcent to the Epte is
L'Eure across the river it is Val-D'Oise, it is a region perculiarly the
people of Normandie prefer to call them selves Normands they do not consider
themselves as French. In St Clair-sur-Epte the people call themselves
French not Normand When Rollo placed his hands in the hands of the French
King to ratify the boundary the Epte formed the boundary North of the Seine
and the Avre south. Just before the Epte there is a town Bordeaux St
Clair-sur-Epte just on the Nornamd side. Immediatly after the river there in
an imposing fortress and church that defended France from Normandie.
