Description[edit | edit source]

Although Occitania never had a real political unity (it consisted of several counties and duchies in today's southern France), its culture enjoyed great prestige all over Europe during the 11th, 12th and 13th centuries, Occitan being the language of troubadours. Its religious freedom allowed the flourishing of Catharism, which was declared heretic by the Pope, and the French kings took advantage of the subsequent crusade to annex its territory.
