Départment de l'Aube

The Aube is the French department in the Champagne-Ardenne region named after the Aube River.

It has a surface area of 6,004 km², a population of 292,000 inhabitants, and is divided into three administrative districts (arrondissements in French) for a total of 33 cantons and 433 municipalities.

It borders (clockwise from the North) the departments of the Marne, Haute-Marne, Côte-d'Or, Yonne and Seine-et-Marne.

In ancient times, the Aube was at the boundary of the Roman Provinces of Gallia Belgica and Gallia Celtica. In Medieval times, it was divided between the County of Champagne and the Duchy of Nemours.
