after Piaf. The upper central part of this scene is dominated by the Paris Basin (Paris Basin (geology)), which consists of a layered sequence of sedimentary rocks. Fertile soils over much of the area make good agricultural land. The Normandie (Normandy) coast to the upper left is characterized by high, chalk cliffs, while the Brittany (Brittany (administrative region)) coast (the peninsula to the left) is highly indented where deep valleys were drowned by the sea, and the Biscay (Bay of Biscay) coast to the southwest is marked by flat, sandy beaches. The title of an article should generally use the version of the name of the subject which is most common in the English language, as you would find it in reliable sources (WP:SOURCES) (for example other encyclopedias and reference works, scholarly journals and major news sources (Wikipedia:NCGN#Widely accepted name)). This makes it easy to find, and easy to compare information with other sources. Often this will be the local version, as with Madrid. Sometimes the usual English version will differ somewhat from the local form (Aragon, Venice, Normandy; Franz Josef Strauss, Victor Emmanuel III (Victor Emmanuel III of Italy), Christopher Columbus). Rarely, as with Germany or Mount Everest, it will be completely different. Origins In 911, the French Carolingian ruler Charles the Simple allowed a group of Vikings under their leader Rollo (Rollo of Normandy) to settle in Normandy as part of the Treaty of Saint-Clair-sur-Epte. In exchange for the land, the Norsemen under Rollo were expected to provide protection along the coast against future Viking invaders. Bates ''Normandy Before 1066'' pp. 8–10 Their settlement proved successful, and the Vikings in the region became known as the "Northmen" from which "Normandy" is derived. Crouch ''Normans'' pp. 15–16 The Normans quickly adapted to the indigenous culture, renouncing paganism and converting to Christianity. Bates ''Normandy Before 1066'' p. 12 They adopted the langue d'oïl of their new home and added features from their own Norse language (Old Norse language), transforming it into the Norman language. They further blended into the culture by intermarrying with the local population. Bates ''Normandy Before 1066'' pp. 20–21 They also used the territory granted them as a base to extend the frontiers of the duchy to the west, annexing territory including the Bessin, the Cotentin Peninsula and Avranches.

shades (sunglasses), now part of her image. In 1523, Cortés made Olid the leader of an expedition to conquer Honduras, but while resupplying in Havana, Olid (at a suggestion by Velázquez) declared his independence from Spain and set out to conquer Honduras for himself. Landing east of Puerto Caballos, he founded the settlement of Triunfo de la Cruz. Many of Olid's supporters moved to Naco, where there was good agricultural land and gold. When Cortés learnt of Olid's rebellion, he sent Francisco de Las Casas against Olid with two warships. Despite the fact that both these ships were destroyed in a storm and many of his soldiers defected to Olid, Las Casas defeated Olid in battle and captured him.
