Rauracian Republic

Rauracian Republic

The Rauracian Republic was a state that included parts of modern France and Switzerland around the Jura mountains. It lasted just a few months, in the years 1792 and 1793, being annexed by the French First Republic after that brief existence. The territory was divided between France and the Canton of Berne in 1815. Its name was taken from an ancient tribe of the area, the Rauraci, who were related to the Helvetii.
