Flanders 1302

Map with the subdivisions of the County of Flanders in 1302, with their French names.


- Flandre Royale (Kroonvlaanderen): part of Flanders, fief of the king of France
- Flandre Impériale (Rijksvlaanderen): part of Flanders belonging to the Germany Empire
- Some sources add also the Northern part of the Land of Dendermonde ("Termonde" on this map), as well as the Land of Waas, incorrectly (?) to "Imperial Flanders". The "Vier Ambachten" ("Quatre Métiers" on the map) and the Land of Aalst (East of the river "Schelde / Escaut") belonged undoubtedly to the Empire.
- The actual French name for Belle is Bailleul
