Languedoc definitions

Merriam Webster's

geographical name region & former province S France extending from Auvergne to the Mediterranean

Britannica Concise

Historical region, S central France. Languedoc's name is derived from the traditional language of S France, in which the word oc means "yes" (see Occitan language). From 121 BC the region was part of the Roman province of Gallia Narbonensis. With the fall of the Roman empire, it was controlled by the Visigoths in the 5th cent. During the Middle Ages it came under the counts of Toulouse. Religious wars (see Albigensian Crusade) in the 13th cent. brought it under the French crown. In the 16th-18th cent. it was the scene of Protestant persecution which culminated in the war of the Camisards. Protestant revolt led to its division into departments.
