Antique map titled 'Vermandois'. Old map of the Vermandois region, France. Vermandois was a French County that appeared in the Merovingian period.

In today's times, the Vermandois County would fall in the Picardy region of northern France. This map shows the cities of S. Quintin, Channi, Noyon, Perone, Lafere and others. Published by J. Janssonius, circa 1640.
