The Trégor (" Br Bro To ripple " in Breton language) is one of new the provinces of Brittany. Located at the North-West of the Brittany, it includes/understands the western part of the department of the Coast-with Armor and a small portion of the North-East of the Finistere, to the river of Morlaix. Its chief town is Tréguier, which is the translation French E of the word Landreger in Breton language.
At one time, the border of Trégor was made with the river of Morlaix. The western bank of this city was thus previously in the évêché of Leon, while the bank is, in was évêché of Tréguier. It is the January 27th 1790, after the revolution, that the Breton deputies refusing the application formulated by the inhabitants of Morlaix to be integrated in the department of Saint-Brieuc, decided that in north, the departmental limit would merge with the course of the Douron. Thus was made up, by dismemberment of évêché of Tréguier, Trégor which one will call finistérien or morlaisien.
Traditionally one speaks the dialect trégorrois there about the Breton.
