One of the earliest references to couscous in Western Europe is in Brittany, in a letter dated January 12, 1699. But it made an earlier appearance in Provence, where the traveler Jean Jacques Bouchard wrote of eating it in Toulon in 1630. Couscous was originally made from millet. See numerous books describing couscous as boiled millet: http: www.google.com search?tbo p&tbm bks&q millet+couscous&tbs ,cdr:1,cd_min:Jan%203_2%201,cd_max:Dec%2031_2%201922&num 10#q millet+couscous&hl en&tbs bks:1,cdr:1,cd_min:Jan+3_2+1,cd_max:Dec+31_2+1922&ei vGxCTdLYEcPbgQeFnc2JAg&start 0&sa N&fp 64aa18c4243f0c16 Historians have different opinions as to when wheat began to replace the use of millet. The conversion seems to have occurred sometime in the 20th century, although many regions continue to use the traditional millet. Couscous seems to have a North African origin.

After a Viking campaign in the West to both Scotland and Brittany, Hrólfr steered his fleet of six ships and a selected crew northwards and did not stop until he reached Uppsala. When the new peace agreement between Hrólfr and king Erik had been established, Hrólf went to Ulleråker to propose once more to the princess. In his efforts as the RSHA emissary in France, Best's unit drew up radical plans for a total reorganization of Western Europe based on racial principles: he sought to unite Netherlands, Flanders and French territory north of the Loire river into the Reich, turn Wallonia and Brittany into German protectorates, merge Northern Ireland with the Republic of Ireland, create a decentralized British federation and break the Spanish State into independent entities of Galicia (Galicia (Spain)), Basque Country (Basque Country (autonomous community)) and Catalonia.

Some Medieval sources list Morlaàs in Béarn, as his birthplace. However, in some records from that period he is called ''Morlanensis'', which would indicate that he was a native of Morlaix in Brittany. A writer in the ''Journal of Theological Studies'' (1907), VIII, 354-359, contended that he belonged to the family of the seigneurs (Seigneur) of Montpellier in Languedoc, and was born at Murles.

'''Brittany''' ( .

The historical province of Brittany is now split among five French departments: Finistère in the west, Côtes-d'Armor in the north, Ille-et-Vilaine in the north east, Loire-Atlantique in the south east and Morbihan in the south on the Bay of Biscay. Since reorganisation in 1956, the modern administrative region of Brittany (Brittany (administrative region)) comprises only four of the five Breton departments, or 80% of historical Brittany. The remaining area of old Brittany, the Loire-Atlantique department around Nantes, now forms part of the Pays de la Loire region.

At the 2010 census, the population of historic Brittany was estimated to be 4,475,295. Of these, 71% lived in the region of Brittany, while 29% lived in the Loire-Atlantique department. In 2008, the largest metropolitan areas were Nantes (854,807 inhabitants), Rennes (654,478 inhabitants), and Brest (Brest, France) (311,735 inhabitants).
