Yeah it just boggles the mind how they were pretty much unstoppable to the extent of my knowledge on the subject which I must say is probably better than most but is next to none at the same time. Maybe they just wanted there own land to call their own that didn't suck so much. I mean their shipbuilding was freaking DYNOMITE...didn't take too long to make was fast/efficient and could go further than anyone elses. A WHOLE LOT FUTHER. They settled up in Canada for a lil while but to a pretty bad place cause it was high up where it was cold. If they just went a lil further down they would've populated Canada and things may have been a whole lot different than they would be today.
They could've changed history a lot more..Maybe they just chose to settle down cause they just took northern france and intermarried and just became part of the French people and it just ended like that.
