Languedoc

Brand extension From 2001 on, Langguth also embarked on a brand extension, and has introduced several other wines under the Blue Nun name, including a German Riesling ice wine, a Languedoc Merlot and a Spanish rosé. Sales in 2004 rose by 11% in the UK, but from a low base. He succeeded his father in 1222. At the moment of his accession, he and the new count of Foix, Roger Bernard II the Great (Roger-Bernard II of Foix), besieged Carcassonne. On 14 September 1224, the Albigensian Crusaders surrendered and the war came to an end, each southern lord making peace with the church. However, in 1225, the council of Bourges excommunicated (excommunication) him and launched a crusade against him, the king of France, Louis VIII (Louis VIII of France), called ''the Lion'', wanting to renew the conflict in order to enforce his royal rights in Languedoc. Roger-Bernard tried to keep the peace, but the king rejected his embassy and the counts of Foix and Toulouse took up arms again. The war was largely a discontinuous series of skirmishes and, in January 1229, Raymond, defeated, was forced to sign the Treaty of Paris (Treaty of Paris (1229)) (also known as the "Treaty of Meaux"), by which he ceded the former viscounty of Trencavel to the king and his daughter Joan (Joan of Toulouse) was forced to marry Alphonse (Alphonse of Toulouse), brother of the new king, Louis the Lion's successor, Louis IX (Louis IX of France). The tide soon turned, however. On the 9th a concerted rising of the townsmen in Boniface's favour put Nogaret and his allies to flight, and the pope was free. His death at Rome on October 11 saved Nogaret. The election of the timid Benedict XI (pope Benedict XI) was the beginning of that triumph of France which lasted through the Avignon captivity (Avignon papacy). Early in 1304 Nogaret went to Languedoc to report to Philip IV, and was rewarded by gifts of land and money. Then he was sent back with an embassy to Benedict XI to demand absolution for all concerned in the struggle with Boniface VIII. Benedict refused to meet Nogaret, and excepted him from the general absolution which he granted on May 12, 1304, and on June 7 issued against him and his associates at Anagni the bull (papal bull) ''Flagitiosum scelus''. Nogaret replied by apologies for his conduct based upon attacks upon the memory of Boniface, and when Benedict died on July 7, 1304 he pointed to his death as a witness to the justice of his cause. Under later Roman rule (after 355), most of ''Occitania'' was known as ''Aquitania'', Jean-Pierre Juge (2001) ''Petit précis - Chronologie occitane - Histoire & civilisation'', p. 14 itself part of the Seven Provinces (Septem Provinciae) with a wider Provence, while the northern provinces of what is now France were called ''Gallia'' (Gaul). Gallia Aquitania (or ''Aquitanica'') is thus also a name used since medieval times for Occitania (i.e. Limousin (Limousin (province)), Auvergne (Auvergne (province)), Languedoc and Gascony), including Provence as well in the early 6th century. Thus the historic Duchy of Aquitaine must not be confused with the modern French region called Aquitaine: this is the main reason why the term ''Occitania'' was revived in the mid-19th century. The names "Occitania" Joseph Anglade, ''Grammaire de l'ancien provençal ou ancienne langue d'oc'', 1921, Part I, Chapter 1, p. 9: ''Le mot ''Langue d'Oc'' a d'abord désigné le ''pays'' où se parlait cette langue; c'était une expression géographique. Le pays de langue d'oc s'appelait en latin ''Occitania'' (formé sans doute sur ''Aquitania'')'' ("The words ''Langue d'Oc'' first designated the ''country'' where the language was spoken: it was a geographical expression. The land of the langue d'oc was called ''Occitania'' in Latin (probably coined from ''Aquitania''"). and "Occitan language" (''Occitana lingua'') appeared in Latin texts from as early as 1242-1254 Frederic Mistral, ''Lo Tresor dóu Felibrige'' (1878-1886), vol. II, p. 1171: "Les textes abondent qui montrent l'origine française ou ecclésiastique
