I think William came from Normandy which wasn't part of France at that time.


This is true -- and it's nice to know, speaking as someone with Norman ancestry, that other people appreciate the difference -- in the broad spectrum of things, though, even if it's a bit layman, I think it's fair to say he was French.

France had plenty of military victories, during the French Revolution. :D

The eight and ninth century Frankish empires? Charlemagne?
The Norman conquest of England?
The French eventually driving out the English and winning the Hundred Years War?
The Thirty Years War?
Revolutionary France?
Napoleon?

I'm fairly sure William the Conqueror was Norwegian/English. If I remember all the studying I did back when I was like...12...the Norrmans (my last name--check it :D ) traipsed over to Normandy from Norway.

But I could be wrong.
