During medieval times when a hero died, their Icelandic horse was buried with them because the horses were symbols of pride and status. Many sagas include important horses and today horse owners are very proud of their herds. #horsesoficeland

On this very day we remember
The Siege of Chartres that was the part of Norman (#Rollo settle with many vikings warriors in Normandy, a Northern region of France) incursions. In 858 the Normans captured and burned Chartres. After that, in the time of relative peace, the town defenses were rebuilt and strengthened. It turned into a fortified, trapezoid-like city, going close to the river.
-
When Rollo led the Danes in a siege, they were formidable enough to persuade Charles the Simple that they might become valuable allies. Richard, Duke of Burgundy split his forces into three corps. The first was made up of Aquitanians, assisted by a group of French nobles.According to legend, Bishop Gantelme exposed the Virgin's tunic on the ramparts and the Normans fled. In 1618 the Italian painter Padovanino painted a version of the event which now hangs in the Pinacoteca di Brera.
