The Armorici were a loose coalition of Bretons, Basques, and Alans who were an underdog contender for supremacy in Gaul circa 481 A.D. Although ultimately unsuccessful, they were serious opponents and desired allies of several different Merovingian rulers. This army does not simulate the forces of Aegidius, Syagrius, or of the Tractus Armorica.
