Historical background


GALLIA BELGICA - MELDI (Area of Meaux)

(1st century BC)

The Meldes are mentioned only once in Caesar's work. This small people lived between the Seine and the Marne in the plain of Brie with Meaux as its capital. The Meldes emancipated themselves late from the tutelage of the Suessions and the Remes at the time of the Gallic Wars. Having become independent in 57 BC, the Meldes chose to ally with the Romans. Caesar had sixty ships built by the Meldes, in 55 BC, for the expedition to Brittany. Caesar (BG. V, 5).
