Plus he wants Flanders since it's a castle that was located behind his rivals land. Having an alliance by marriage with Flanders would make his enemies surrounded on both fronts. Raping Matilda would not only make it worse but will destroy his reputation among his own faction.

Honestly, it was lucky enough they didn't start a war against Flanders after he beat up Matilda. Honestly, history is weird like that.

Man Viking sure play a lot more significant role in history than people know about. They're not just raiders that worship pagan stuff the Norman were French Viking, there was the English Viking that went on a crusade and if course can't forget the awesome Vangarian Guards of Constantinople the Royal Guard of the Emperor.
