Was Paris invaded by the so called Saracens or Moslems? Or, could the identity of these invaders be confused?

Paris was only attacked by Vikings as written in the link you provided. Muslims were defeated in Battle of Tours in 732 by Charles Martlel that halted further Muslim advance to Europe. Some say that battle was nothing significant because it was another border clash on Frankish- Muslim border, but I don't think so- it was significant victory by Christian Europe. If Muslims would won they could go further and reach Paris and go to Germany.

At Hundred year war Paris was taken by English.

Yes sir! I must undertand the site that I delivered during my original posts! How nice it was for you to commend me about that point! Laugh!

However, I was not trying to be "jestful", or was I?

It has always seemed to me, at least, that anyone with the name "maurice" might well have been considered to be a "Moor?" That is, according to some of the following sites, the very word "Maurice" is considered to have a certain meaning?

http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&aq=0&oq=maurice+meaning&ie=UTF-8&rlz=1T4ADBR_enUS315US315&q=maurice+meaning+of+name

The following is a good example of the meanings found above?

"The boy's name Maurice \ma(u)-ri-ce\ is pronounced maw-REESE.
It is of Latin origin, and its meaning is "dark-skinned, Moorish". Also possibly an Anglicised form of Muirgheas (Irish, Gaelic) "seafarer" and ultimately derive from the Phoenician term "mauharim", meaning "easterner".

Roman name introduced to Britain by the Normans and commonly used into the 17th century. Saint Maurus (sixth century) was a French saint. Mauricio is a Spanish form; Mauro is Italian and Portuguese."

I have merely contrived to be able to consider a "seafarer", to ultimately connect to Viking! Dark skinned, might well only refer to the typical colour of sea-men, who were mostly tanned to a dark shade, as compared to the typical citizen of a community far removed from the Sea!

CAn any of you actually consider that the word "Charles" or "Karl" or "Carlo", etc., actually meant only "King" or "leader?", or even "Caesar?"
