The name "Guernsey", as well as that of neighbouring "Jersey", is of Old Norse origin. The second element of each word, "-ey", is the Old Norse for "island", while the original root, "guern(s)", is of uncertain origin and meaning, possibly deriving from either a personal name such as Grani or Warinn, or from gron, meaning pine tree. Like UsefulNotes/{{Jersey}}, the territory was a former part of Duchy of Normandy, and remained under English control after Philip II of France took the rest of the Duchy over and Normandy became part of France, eventually being recognized as part of Henry III's territories in the 1259 Treaty of Paris. The island was also taken over by Germany from 30 June 1940 until the 9 May 1945, and was very heavily fortified by the Germans, with remnants of the defences still existing to this day.
