Historical background


REDONES (Area of Rennes)

(2nd - 1st century BC)

The Redons occupied the eastern part of Armorica, corresponding to the current department of Ille-et-Vilaine. Their neighbors were the Coriosolites, the Namnètes, the Unelles and the Aulerques. They would have had an outlet on the sea, at the level of the bay of Mont-Saint-Michel. Their surname is found in the towns of Redon and Rennes (Condate). They were part of the coalition of 57 BC, which shied away from combat, and were subjugated by Crassus. The following year, the Roman emissaries were taken prisoner, which forced Caesar to intervene in Armorica in order to subdue the rebellious tribes, before moving to Brittany the following year to punish the tribes from across the Channel who had brought their support for the Armoricans. In 52 BC, at the request of Vercingetorix, they provided a contingent for the relief army; this, according to Caesar, included twenty thousand men for all the Armoricans. Caesar (BG. II, 34, VII, 75).
