France in the Middle Ages

Use these links to see how the boundaries of English possessions in France changed during the Middle Ages. On the maps of France, the purple areas in the 1086 and 1174 maps represent those French lordships that did not acknowledge royal control at those times. The blue areas in all maps show the growth of French crown lands and of other territories eventually dependent upon the French kings. The yellow area within the dotted line extends to the boundaries of modern France.
