|Title||Li Governi d’Angió, del Saumurois, della Touraine, e Poitou, d’Aunis, e Saintonge, con quello d’Angoumois.|
Map shows the historical provinces of France Anjou (city Angers), Touraine (city Tours), Poitou (Poitiers), Aunis (city La Rochelle), Saintonge (city Saintes), Angoumois (city Angouleme), Saumurois (city Saumur) with a decorative title cartouche.
At first Anjou was included in the gouvernement (or military command) of Orléanais, but in the 17th century was made into a separate one. Saumur, however, and the Saumurois, for which King Henry IV had in 1589 created an independent military governor-generalship in favour of Duplessis-Mornay, continued till the Revolution to form a separate gouvernement, which included, besides Anjou, portions of Poitou and Mirebalais.
