This chapter traces the history of Brittany from union to 1945. In 1532, only a few years before the union of England and Wales, the political independence of the descendants of the Celtic emigrants in Britannia minor also came to an end. As a province of the kingdom of France, however, Brittany experienced a period of economic prosperity, owing chiefly to maritime trade, agriculture and the domestic textile industry. The chapter then discusses bilingualism in Brittany, and modern Breton literature.

Keywords:   economic developments, bilingualism, Breton literature, Brittany, union
