Poitou

The region of Poitou


Poitou (French pronunciation: [pwatu]) was a province of west-central France whose capital city was Poitiers.

 

The region of Poitou was called Thifalia (or Theiphalia) in the sixth century.

 

There is a marshland called the Poitevin Marsh (French Marais Poitevin) on the Gulf of Poitou, on the west coast of France, just north of La Rochelle and west of Niort.
