Historical background


(Seventh century)

Troyes owes its name to the Gallic tribe of Tricasses, whose capital was called Augustabona in Roman times. In 451, Roman Emperor Valentinian III, with the help of his assistants Visigoths, Bretons, Burgundians, Leti, Saxons and Franks defeated the Huns between Troyes and Chalons-en-Champagne, at a place called "The Chalons." In 878, Pope John VIII called a council there. Devastated by the Normans shortly after, the city rose from its ruins. It became in the Middle Ages, at the time of the Champagne fairs, a thriving market known for its great annual fairs, which were defined weights and measures, such as weight troy still in force today. In the Merovingian period, the city struck names IVSTINVS, CHARIBERTVS REX GENNVLFVS, AVDOLENVS, MVMMOLENVS, CONCESSVS, BERTERAMNVS, VVILLOBERTVS.
