History[edit] The Gallo-Romans founded the town as Noviomagus (Celtic for "New Field" or "Market"). As several other cities shared the name, it was distinguished by specifying the people living in and around it. The town is mentioned in the Antonine Itinerary

as being 27 Roman miles from Soissons
and 34  Roman miles
Roman miles
from Amiens, but d'Anville noted that the distance must be in error, Amiens
being further and Soisson closer than indicated. By the Middle Ages, the town's Latin name had mutated to Noviomum. The town was strongly fortified; some sections of the Roman walls still remained in late antiquity. This may explain why, around the year 531, bishop Medardus
moved his seat from Vermand
in the Vermandois
to Noyon. (Another option was to move his seat to Saint-Quentin but the wine produced in Noyon
was thought to be much better than that produced in Saint-Quentin.[1] Other explanations are that Medardus
was born near the town, at Salency, or that the place is nearer to Soissons, which was one of the royal capitals of the Merovingians.) The bishop of Noyon
was also bishop of Tournai from the seventh century until Tournai was raised to a separate diocese 1146.[2] The cathedral at Noyon
was where Charlemagne
was crowned as co-King of the Franks in 768,[3] as was the first Capetian king, Hugh Capet
Hugh Capet
in 987.[4] In 859 the town was attacked by Vikings[5] and the bishop, Immo, captured and killed.[6] The town received a communal charter in 1108, which was later confirmed by Philip Augustus in 1223. In the twelfth century, the diocese of Noyon
was raised to an ecclesiastical duchy in the peerage of France. The Romanesque cathedral was destroyed by fire in 1131, but soon replaced by the present cathedral, Notre-Dame de Noyon, constructed between 1145 and 1235, one of the earliest examples of Gothic architecture

in France. The bishop's library is a historic example of half-timbered construction. By the Treaty of Noyon, signed on the 13 August 1516 between Francis I of France
and emperor Charles V, France
abandoned its claims to the Kingdom of Naples
Kingdom of Naples
and received the Duchy of Milan in recompense. The treaty brought the War of the League of Cambrai— one stage of the Italian Wars— to a close. During King Henry II's Italian war in 1557, most of Noyon
would be burned,[7] in the midst of Philip II of Spain's invasion of Picardy,[8] before returning to their winter quarters in the Spanish Netherlands.[8] Near the end of the sixteenth century the town fell under Habsburg control, but Henry IV of France
recaptured it. The Concordat of 1801 suppressed its bishopric. The town was occupied by the Germans during World War I

and World War II

and on both occasions suffered heavy damage. Personalities[edit]
