The Territoire de Belfort is a department in the Franche-Comté region of eastern France.

Administration

Its departmental code is 90, and its prefecture (capital) is Belfort.

History

Created in 1922, it is made up of that part of the former province of Alsace which was retained by France between 1871-1919, which was also known as the "Territoire de Belfort". The territory was spared German annexation on the ground that people there were French-speaking, unlike those in the rest of Alsace.

Geography

The department has an area of only 609 km² (235 sq. miles), being the fifth smallest of France (after Paris and its suburbs Hauts-de-Seine, Seine-Saint-Denis, and Val-de-Marne).
