  1. Ancient History: The history of Bretagne dates back to ancient times when it was inhabited by Celtic tribes. The region was known as Armorica and had close ties with Celtic Britain.
  2. Roman Influence: The Romans occupied the region during the 1st century BC. However, their control over Armorica was limited, and the Celtic culture persisted.
  3. Medieval Period: In the medieval period, the region became known as Bretagne, and it developed its distinct Breton identity. It experienced periods of independence as well as being incorporated into the Kingdom of France.
  4. Duchy of Bretagne: The Duchy of Bretagne was established in the 9th century. It maintained a certain level of autonomy, often engaging in complex political alliances with neighboring regions.
