western districts fell under French rule in the late 12th century. The remaining parts of Flanders came under the rule of the counts of neighbouring Hainaut (County of Hainaut) in 1191 ( Baldwin V of Hainaut). The entire area passed in 1384 ( Philip the Bold) to the dukes of Burgundy (Duchy of Burgundy), in 1477 ( Mary of Burgundy) to the Habsburg dynasty, and in <
