This must be the shortest article I've seen, with no content at all. Presumably there's a template to make the definition at least appear here. Peter Jackson 09:25, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

I am adding token geographical information and some historical information. Most of the geographical information comes out of my head. Most of the historical information comes from Joel Cornette: Histoire de la Bretagne et des Bretons, with some other sources. The historical information will only go up to 1532, when Brittany was unified with France. You can see where I have been on holiday. --Martin Wyatt 19:55, 21 June 2014 (UTC) P S thanks for correcting the definition. --Martin Wyatt 19:58, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

Is there an alternative theory of the origin of the name? If not, the fact should be mentioned. Peter Jackson 09:48, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
