A historical region and former province of northwest France on the English Channel. Part of ancient Gaul, the region was successively conquered by the Romans, Franks, and Norse; during the Middle Ages it was sporadically controlled by the Anglo-Norman kings of England, but passed permanently to France in 1450. Its beaches were the focal point of Allied landings on D-day (June 6, 1944) in World War II.
