Founded by the Romans, the city was first named after Augusta Viromanduorum. It was destroyed in the 3rd century. A new settlement appeared during the High Middle Ages: it grew around Quentin’s tomb, a Christian martyr who died in Augusta. The abbey named after him was first cited in 806. The city became royal domain at the start of the 8th century. Its ideal position between Champagne and Flanders helped its growth but also caused its decline: the city was well sought and was particularly affected by the Hundred Years War. At the end of the 16th century, the city began to specialise in the production of fine linens. It became a thriving industrial city in the 19th century, with successful and prosperous textile and mechanical industries.
