The Duchy of Auvergne (French: Duché d'Auvergne; Scottish Gaelic: Diùcachd na Auvergne), also recognized as Auvergne is a state located in Central France. In 1408 the personal union between the Kingdom of Scotland, the Duchy of Auvergne and the County of Boulogne begins and a new prosperous era emerges for our realm.

Background

John II, Count of Auvergne and Boulogne, passes away from life and Joan II, David III's wife inherits the Duchy of Auvergne and the County of Boulogne, thus the Scottish Crown Prince David III effectively rules over his wife's domain via jure uxoris rule.

In 1408 King Robert II Bruce of Scotland abdicates the Scottish throne to his son, Crown Prince David III.

The personal union between the Duchy of Auvergne, the County of Boulogne and the Kingdom of Scotland begins.

In Auvergne, King David III of Scotland is known as “Duke David I of Auvergne”. His late wife Joan II of Auvergne and Boulogne is a very celebrated figure in Auvergne.
