Historical background

Meldi (Region Meaux)

(First century BC)

The Meldi are mentioned only once in the work of Caesar. This little people lived between the Seine and the Marne in the plain of Brie Meaux with capital. The Meldi have emancipated themselves from the tutelage of late Suessiones and Remi at the time of the Gallic Wars. Became independent in 57 BC, the Meldi chose to ally with the Romans. Caesar built sixty ships in Meldi in 55 BC, for shipment to Britain. Caesar (Bg. V, 5).
