Angers - A settlement in Lugdunensis also known as Andecavis - Andecaves - Juliomagus
Angers is a city in what is now France. It was probably founded by the Andecavi tribe in the early 5th century BC - and by the end of the Iron Age, Angers was a relatively densely populated hillfort.

While the settlement's Roman name—Juliomagus—may be older, it is only attested from the 3rd century. The Roman town consisted of many villas and baths and had an amphitheater as well as a Mithraeum, a temple dedicated to Mithra. Angers received its first bishop in 372 during the election of Martin of Tours. The first abbey, Saint-Aubin, was built during the 7th century to house the sarcophagus of Saint Albinius.

For centuries, Angers was an important stronghold in northwestern France. It was the cradle of the Plantagenet dynasty and became one of the intellectual centers of Europe during the reign of René of Anjou.
