Lorraine

Lorraine was created when the Frankish Kingdom was divided in three parts 843. When  Lothaire I died 855 Lorraine was itself divided into three parts whereby only the northern part retained the name Lorraine. Thereafter the French and German kings fought over the control over this area, but from 925 was it a German duchy. It was 959 divided into Upper and Lower Lorraine, the latter duchy transformed into the duchy of Brabant 1190 Where after Upper Lorraine was known only as Lorraine. This considerably smaller duchy compared to the original kingdom became a French province 1766.
