  • Title/Content of Map: 'France [in departments during the Revolution]' This fascinating map shows France in departments during the Revolutionary period. In addition to the territory occupied by modern-day France, the map shows Revolutionary France including the 13 short-lived departments of what is now Belgium, and 6 departments in what is today Piedmont, Italy. These 6 Piedmontese departments, plus the two departments of Savoy had constituted the continental part of the Kingdom of Sardinia until its defeat by Napoleon in 1796. What are today the departments of Savoie and Haute-Savoie were then known as "Mont Blance" (sic) and Leman, the French name for Lake Geneva. Savoy was returned to the Kingdom of Sardinia after the Congress of Vienna, but annexed again by France later in the 19th century.
