Historical background

Arverni (Region Clermont-Ferrand)

(Second - first century BC)

Arverni occupied the present territory of the former province of Auvergne. They were considered "the most warlike among the Celtic Gauls." The first direct conflict broke out in the second century, when the Roman merchants settled in Transalpine in what would become the Provincia (Province, became the Provence). It was not until 52 BC Vercingetorix became the leader of the coalition of Gallic tribes against the Roman occupiers. He won a great victory near Gergovie. Having inadvertently continued Caesar's army, he found himself besieged in Alesia. Resistant hard, he relied on the army to deliver relief, but defeated, he had to go to Caesar who kept alive to engage his triumph in 46 BC Vercingetorix was then strangled in prison..
