The 10th century saw Limousin divided into a number of small governmental [feudal] units. The northern part of Limousin became the country of Marche. The counts of Angouleme, Auvergne and Poitou annexed other parts. By the middle of the following century, the Duke of Aquitaine, through the viscounts of Comborn, Limoges, Turenne and Ventadour, ruled the remaining territory.
