Porc Normande

Whatever Prince Harry is getting up to tonight, consider that, like Henry VIII before him and Prince Hal before that, he will always be an amateur compared to their ancestor and namesake, Henry I.

William the Conqueror’s youngest son probably became King of England by having one his own brothers murdered, certainly became Duke of Normandy by defeating another brother in battle, had at least 29 children by at least eight (and possibly 19) different women, and literally ate himself to death on the night of 1st and 2nd December 1135, aged 67.
