is a cultural and administrative region in the north-west of France. Previously
as a kingdom and then as a duchy, Brittany was a fief of the Kingdom
of France. Brittany has also been referred to as Less, Lesser or Little
Britain (as opposed to Great Britain). It is characterized as one of the
six Celtic nations.
Brittany occupies a large
peninsula in the north west of France, lying between the English Channel
to the north and the Bay of Biscay to the south. The historical province
of Brittany is divided into five departments: Finistère in the west,
Côtes-d'Armor in the north, Ille-et-Vilaine in the north east, the
Loire-Atlantique in the south east and Morbihan in the south on the Bay
In 1956, French Regions were
created by gathering Departements between them. The Region of Brittany
comprises, since then, four of the five breton départements (80%
of historical Brittany), while the remaining area of the old Brittany,
the Loire-Atlantique département around Nantes forms part of the
Pays de la Loire region. This territorial organisation is sometimes contested.
