Rouergue

Rouergue is an old province of France, bounded on the north by Auvergne, on the south and southwest by Languedoc, on the east by Gevaudan[?] and on the west by Quercy[?].

It included the county of Rodez[?], and was divided between the dioceses of Rodez[?] and Vabres[?].

During the Middle Ages, Rouergue changed hands a number of times, its rulers including England (due to the Treaty of Bretigny[?] in 1360), Armagnac[?], and Languedoc.

The lands of Rouergue are now in the department of Aveyron.
