County Of Boulogne
The COUNTY OF BOULOGNE was a county within the kingdom of France during the 9th to 15th centuries, centred on the city of Boulogne-sur-Mer . It was ruled by the counts of Flandres in the 10th century, but a separate House of Boulogne emerges in the 11th. It was annexed by Philip II of France in 1212 and after this was treated as part of the county of Artois , until it was finally annexed into the royal domain in 1550. CONTENTS * 1 History * 2 List of counts * 3 See also * 4 References HISTORY Boulogne was already a pagus within the kingdom of the Franks (pagus Bononiensis). There are few records prior to the 11th century. A proverbially wicked count named Herrequin is recorded for the 9th century, but he may be legendary (see Herla , Erlking ). It seems to have come under the rule of the counts of Flanders in the late 9th or early 10th century
