n Tourism in Provence Chateau d'If L' Histoire de Provence The history of Provence is very long. It was inhabited since prehistoric times. The sites found date back to 900,000 BC. Provence was very famous for its trading ports. Massalia (Now Marseille) was first a major trading port created by the Greeks when they permanently settled in Provence in 600 BC. People of Massalia pledged to the Romans for help fighting the Ligures in 4th century BC.
The Roman Legion entered Provence three times: 181 BC, 154 BC, and 125 BC. The Romans established Provence as an official province of Rome. They named it “Provinca”
The Roman power in Provence declined when the Roman empire began to fall apart. There was no Roman power in Provence at the end of the 5th century During the 5th to 9th century, Provence was ruled by the Merovingian dynasty. Then it was ruled by the Carolingian kings, famous for Charlemagne. Three different dynasties of Counts ruled Provence during the Middle Ages, and Provence became a prize in the complex rivalries between the Catalan rulers of Barcelona, the Kings of Burgundy, the German rulers of the Holy Roman Empire, and the Angevin Kings of France (9th - 13th century) Provence was legally incorporated into the French royal domain in 1486.
Provence slowly grew under French rule and by the time of 19th century it was prosperous. A large city like Marseille was very important to the French empire and later due to its ports.
Marseille 1794 - Vernet Provence suffered under warfare in the 20th century.
It was occupied by Italian soldiers after the Germans defeated the French in 1940.
Finally it became part of the administrative region Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur; when the term was created in 1982.
