During the Gallo-Roman period, Alençon was a simple river crossing on the Sarthe At the beginning of the 11th century, the city was described by sources as a fortified market town. Two hundred years later, Alençon was established as a duchy. Spurred on by Marguerite de Lorraine, the duchess of Alençon, the city experienced significant growth in the 15th century. It was made part of the royal estate in the 16th century, becoming one of the hotbeds of the Reformation. Colbert also established the Manufacture Royale de Dentelles here. Alençon lace, an adaptation of Venice lace, quickly became popular far and wide.
