Despite its miniscule size, Gerberoy is recognized as being among the most beautiful locations in France, a charming town that appears to have been taken out of a storybook.

Gerberoy in People's Lives
William the Conqueror: After increasing tension with my eldest son, Robert Curthose, he rebelled against me, making his own claim on the Norman kingdom, and fortified himself against me at a castle in this town, in 1078. I laid siege on the town all through the winter, and in the early months of 1079, my son and I finally met in battle. Robert unhorsed me and nearly killed me. Some say that I was saved just in time by my English soldiers, others say that Robert allowed himself to be overpowered. I decided to lift the siege, and went back to Rouen. Robert and I reconciled later in the year. I affirmed that he was, despite his treason, still heir to the throne of Normandy.
