Normandy is a geographical and cultural territory, located in the north-west of France and bordered by the Channel; it has gone through different historical epochs, despite a lack of administrative recognition between the French Revolution of 1789 and the territorial reform of 2015. The historical continental borders of the province of the Ancien Régime quite faithfully espouse those of the contemporary administrative region.

Founded in Neustria by Rollon, the duchy of Normandy occupies from 911 the lower valley of the Seine, then the Bessin, the country of Auge and the Hiémois in 924, Cotentin, Avranchin and the islands of the Channel In 933. In 1066, the Duke of Normandy William the Conqueror conquered England and became king. A century and a half later, in 1204, the king of France Philippe Auguste invaded the duchy and integrates it to the royal domain, except for its insular part, which forms the bailiwicks of Jersey and Guernsey, dependent on the British crown. The mainland then becomes French province, until 1790, while the Channel Islands remain under the sovereignty of the monarchs of Great Britain under the title of "Duke of Normandy".

When the regions were created in 1956, continental Normandy was divided into two territorial communities, which share the name: the two administrative regions of Upper Normandy and Lower Normandy. Their reunification within a single Normandy region is voted by the National Assembly on December 17, 2014 and is applied on January 1, 2016, after the December 2015 regional elections. © Pictures of Emmanuel Buchot
