Lorraine is a historical region in northeastern France. It extends from the north of the Moselle River to the west of the Vosges mountains. The area was originally inhabited by the Celtic tribe of the Treveri. The Treveri were conquered by the Romans in 58 BC, and the region became part of the Roman province of Belgica. In 496 AD, the region was conquered by the Franks, and it became part of the Kingdom of Austrasia.
During the Middle Ages, Lorraine was a prosperous region. Its cities were important centers of trade and manufacturing. The region was also known for its wines, which were exported all over Europe.
Lorraine was annexed by France in 1766. During the French Revolution, the people of Lorraine were active participants in the uprising against the monarchy. In 1871, the region was annexed by Germany. During World War I, Lorraine was the scene of heavy fighting between the French and German armies. In 1918, the region was returned to France.
