I don't get it... how can it be possible. The Normans never conquered Scotland. They conquered England, Wales and Ireland but they never conquered Scotland. So were there or not. I think not. Couldn't have been. England is a Norman country, not Scotland.

Now England, after the Normans, and having been Norman, did try to conquer Scotland, but it didn't work. Robert the Bruce (not William Wallace as the idiots claim) won Scotland their freedom.

Kinda confused sorry
There can't be anything Norman about Scotland (at least especially the Lowlands). Don't know about the Highlands though. I can see them being Norman, not the Lowlands.

The Normans never controlled all of Scotland, but they controlled a group of isles above Scotland, and raided them for more and more land. eventually they were pushed out though.

Yeah I agree, that the Normans would be common in the north, in the Highlands, which is why they are strongly Catholic, and if they aren't Catholic, would side with the Anglicans. The Lowlands of Scotland are strongly anti-Catholic and anti-Anglican. They are Presbyterian. Devout Protestantism is something they inherited from the Anglo-Saxons (ok, no but they are Anglo-Saxon in origin, and as well all know like the Scandinavian countries, that portion of Scotland is strongly Protestant).

I know there had to be something wrong with what I'm reading, because as we all know Scotland and Northern Ireland is the most anti-Loyalist of all the Isles, and, perhaps not coincidently, the most Protestant. Anglicanism is really Catholicism with a few minor changes.

Reason being that today that the lowlands of Scotland and northern Ireland are the most Anglo-Saxon in all of Britain, while the rest of the Isles are either French, Breton, or Celtic.

Maybe, but Normans morphed into the Norwegian ethnic group. Pretty much wen people say Normans, they mean vikings.

So in other words, Norway isn't Germanic then huh? I always knew they had to be Celtic, but in any case, Norwegians would be a bit French today huh

what is the actual truth? every time there are new facts.
