History

Napoleonic departments
Napoleonic departments

Departments were created on January 4, 1790 by the Constituent Assembly to replace the country's former provinces with a more rational structure. They were also designed to deliberately break up France's historical regions in an attempt to erase cultural differences and build a more homogeneous nation. Most departments are named after the area's principal river(s) or other physical features.

In 1860, France acquired the Comté de Nice and Savoy, which led to the creation of three new departments. Two departments were created from the new Savoyard territory, while the department of Alpes-Maritimes was created from Nice and a portion of the Var department.

Departments of France - definition of Departments of France in Encyclopedia (635 words)
The départements (or departments) are administrative units of France, roughly analogous to British counties and are now grouped into 22 metropolitan and four overseas régions.
Each department is administered by a Conseil Général elected for six years, and its executive is, since 1982 headed by the president of that council (formerly it was headed by the préfet).
The number of départements rose from an initial 83 to 130 by 1810 with the territorial gains of the Republic and of the Empire (see Provinces of the Netherlands for the annexed Dutch departements), but they were reduced again to 86 with Napoleon I's defeat in 1814-1815.
